CHRISTA HOWLEY
Executive Director (email)

After graduating from the University of Michigan, Christa began her career at EDS, working on their Chevrolet and National Geographic accounts. After several years in the workplace, she returned to U of M and earned her Master’s in Business Administration. 

An internship at Focus: HOPE gave Christa a taste of the non-profit environment before she headed off to Deloitte to join their consulting group. After working her way up to Senior Manager, she decided she did not want the partner track and took a break from her professional career to raise her family.

Channeling her energies into volunteering, Christa started a Motor Moms & Dads Program at Ward Preschool and ran the program, including organizing 40+ volunteers, for two years before passing it on to another parent. With three kids who have grown up in Northville Schools, Christa has done everything from assisting in the classroom, to chaperoning field trips, to helping with reading programs. She was also active with the Girl Scouts and at her church where she helps run their Vacation Bible School Program. 

Now that her kids are at Northville High School, Christa can often be found distributing water to the marching band at football games or timing swim meets on the pool deck. Christa participated and volunteered in a few Northville Educational Foundation events before formally joining NEF in February 2017 as the Foundation's Assistant. She became Executive Director in October, 2017.
