About Chris Spagnola

Chris Spagnola recruits nonprofit professionals nationwide, specializing in attracting top-caliber executive leadership and development talent for her clients. 

Prior to joining the ThinkingAhead Nonprofit practice in 2011, Chris spent twelve years recruiting in-house for ThinkingAhead and its sister company, Great American Opportunities, Inc.  She graduated with honors from Hillsdale College with a B.A. in Mathematics and French.  

Chris currently serves on the Board for CTK Cares. She and her husband, Joe, have two children and live near Cleveland, Ohio. When she’s not connecting talented nonprofit professionals with exceptional mission-driven organizations, you can find her enjoying time with her family – which often involves watching one of her kids move a ball down a field or court, volunteering with local children-focused organizations and church, cooking, or traveling.
