Torrey Albertazzi, Director of Operations
Torrey brings over 15 years of experience navigating organizational change in the nonprofit and private sectors. She began her career in the nonprofit sector as an Executive Assistant at Price Charities, where she played a significant role in creating the City Heights Partnership for Children, a cross-sector collective impact initiative. The City Heights Partnership for Children transitioned over to United Way of San Diego County, as did Torrey’s role. Serving in a variety of roles at United Way, Torrey continued to successfully orchestrate cross-sector collaboration as she built strong relationships and strategic partnerships with community, program, policy, and systems leaders – locally, statewide, and nationally. As Director, Strategic Initiatives, Torrey served at the intersection of United Way’s Community Impact, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Resource Development work to align partners and leverage resources to create positive change in the community.
Torrey’s earlier professional experience includes administrative and business development roles for one of San Diego’s leading law firms, Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani, LLP. After 9 years with United Way, Torrey joined Blair Search Partners in February of 2022 as Director of Operations. Working across every area of the firm, Torrey manages daily operations as well as organizational development and strategic growth initiatives.
