Hi folks,

I am delighted to introduce the Wikimedia Foundation’s new office 
manager and new PA. These are our first hires for the San Francisco 

Our new office manager is Erica Ortega. Erica comes to us from COPIA: 
The American Center for Wine Food & the Arts, a Napa nonprofit where she 
was executive administrator to the president. She was previously board 
relations manager for COPIA, and prior to that was office manager for a 
nonprofit charter schools management organization called Envision 
Schools, and benefits/payroll assistant for the University of California 
at Berkeley.

Our new PA (personal assistant to the Executive Director) is Cheryl 
Steffen. Cheryl has just relocated to San Francisco from Chicago, where 
she was executive assistant to the CEO at a company called Urban Retail 
Properties. Prior to that, she was a copywriter and executive assistant 
to the COO at Aon Corporation, and a circulation assistant at the 
American Medical Association.

Please join me in welcoming Erica and Cheryl to the team. And many 
thanks to Mona Venkateswaran and Erik Möller for participating in the 
hiring process: their support has been much appreciated.

I will be announcing additional new hires in the coming weeks.

Sue Gardner
