Nonprofit Resources is happy to welcome two new staff members to the NPR family – Tori Houwman and Ryan Krantz! Tori and Ryan will be helping with administrative and graphics projects for our NPR client group.
Tori Houwman – Program Coordinator
Tori Houwman is the newest Program Coordinator to join the Nonprofit Resources team. Tori graduated in 2017 from Dakota Wesleyan University with a bachelor’s degree in biology and a minor in behavioral sciences. She went on to pursue a graduate level degree at College of Saint Mary in Omaha, Nebraska where she earned her Masters in health & science. Tori has always pursued healthcare because of her passion for helping people, and is very excited now to enter a career that will allow her to use her healthcare expertise, but also feed her creative and social side. She brings a strong skill profile to the team with her sense of organization and responsibility. She thinks outside the box and is excited to engage and learn more about event planning, marketing, and graphics. Tori served as an intern at Sanford Health in Sioux Falls, SD on the medical/oncology unit, and has also traveled to Peru on a medical mission trip through FIMRC (Foundation of International Medical Relief of Children) serving orphanages, teen moms, and newborns. The Airstream life is on Tori ’s personal to-do list. She intends to not only purchase and renovate an Airstream but visit all the National Parks in it! She loves her family, her dogs, and of course – coffee!
Ryan Krantz – Graphics and Administration
Ryan received a B.S. in Environmental Science from Point Loma Nazarene University in 2017. With that degree, he enjoyed the opportunity to study at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, as well as the Au Sable Institute for Environmental Studies in Washington state. Post-undergrad, he pursued creative marketing and design from Sessions College while working full time. His experience as a graphic designer and content creator makes him a great fit for the NPR team, and he’s looking forward to new challenges clients throw his way. Ryan has a passion for land and wildlife conservation, and can often be found adventuring in the United States public lands or out surfing in his hometown of San Diego. At home, Ryan loves developing his photography and design skills, cooking, reading, and caring for his poodle, Pumpkin.
