Tacy Layne

A lifelong West Virginia resident, Tacy graduated from Fairmont State University in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in English. Following graduation, she worked as a marketing administrator for an advertising publication. In 2015, inspired by travel to Malawi, Africa, Tacy began work in the nonprofit sector as a writer/editor for an international nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the orphan crisis. Moved by the realization that extreme poverty is the leading cause of family disruption, Tacy joined Nuru International in 2018 to support fundraising efforts, donor relations, and communications. In her spare time, she enjoys training for marathons, whitewater rafting, skiing, and occasional foraging.
