Past Board Members
Hanh Le is the executive director of the Weissberg Foundation, where she leads strategy development, grantmaking, operations, and stakeholder engagement. Prior to joining the foundation in 2016, she was the chief program officer at Exponent Philanthropy, where she led educational programming, content development, and internal learning efforts. Hanh has directed training, grant, and technical assistance programs for KaBOOM!, Community Technology Centers’ Network, and the Peace Corps. She holds degrees from the College of William & Mary in environmental geology and the University of Virginia School of Architecture in urban and environmental planning.
Inspired by the power of collaborative impact and the DC-area community, Hanh co-founded the Cherry Blossom Giving Circle and co-chairs the Metro-DC chapter of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy and the Racial Equity Working Group of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers (WRAG). She also sits on the boards of the WRAG, Innovation Network, Asian American LEAD, and North Capital Main Street. She is passionate about family, friends, dogs, biking, food, matrixes and bad TV.
Amanda O'Meara has been at the Foundation since 2009. She is the program officer leading the Foundation's Criminal Justice funding and supporting the Diversity in Theater Initiative. Before joining the Foundation, Amanda spent some time living in Nairobi, Kenya while interning with the UN World Food Program. Her passion for social justice and human rights was ignited during her two year stay as she traveled all over East Africa volunteering for various human rights organizations.
Amanda graduated from George Mason University with a B.A. in Global Affairs and a minor in Women's Studies. She loves spending time with her family and friends, hiking with her dog, trying new restaurants, Zengo spin classes, and rooting for the New York Giants.
Jenell Rosa is a program assistant at the Weissberg Foundation, where she provides programmatic, communications, and administrative support to advance the foundation’s mission. Jenell's commitment to democratic values and social justice started at home with family discussions and education on issues of human rights; her work at the Nathan Cummings Foundation allowed her passion for equity to flourish. One of Jenell's favorite quotes (and words to live by) is from Jon Bon Jovi, "nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate." She believes passion is what fuels us to work for the change we believe is possible.
Jenell has a creative soul and loves everything arts related. The Washington, DC native has a passion for fashion, which led her to pursue her BA in Fashion at the Art Institute. In her spare time, she dabbles in pottery, interior design, crafting, and DIY projects. She also enjoys catching up with family and friends, playing with her dog Ziggy, or binging on the latest Netflix series.
