Geoff has spent his entire career working in either youth and/or workforce development. Geoff joins the Wallin team, having spent nearly a decade with College Possible serving most recently as Executive Director of College Possible Minnesota, their largest and most complex site. In this role, Geoff managed a team of over 100 people that worked alongside students throughout the State of Minnesota. Geoff also currently serves on the Leadership Council of ConnextMSP, an organization built to ensure that young professionals of color in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul region are recruited, hired, and supported by local employers as they launch their careers.
After graduating from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, Geoff began his career working with Minneapolis Public Schools. He then served in the United States Peace Corps in Romania, where he worked as an institutional development volunteer supporting a start-up nonprofit as they built out their programming and organizational systems, processes, and structures. When Geoff returned to the United States, he spent three years working in workforce development before joining College Possible.
Other than his stint in Romania, Geoff has called Minnesota home for his entire life. When not working to address the most pressing needs of our community Geoff is most happy spending time with his family, including his two young children of 7 and 3 years. He loves being outside camping, biking, or just getting lost in the woods.
