LisaCaitlin Perri, Senior Associate, Director of Research

Co-Director of m+r interim solutions


LisaCaitlin Perri has more than 15 years of experience with research, analysis, and project management, and nine years of experience focused on fundraising initiatives for non-profit organizations.  She joined the moss+ross team in early 2012.  Primarily, her work involves electronic prospect screening, data management and reporting guidance, client surveys, and on-demand research services.  She also supports the firm’s development assessments, feasibility studies, campaign implementation engagements, board training, and strategic planning, as well as the executive searches and interim staffing.

In the past year, she has worked with Durham 150, Durham Library Foundation, Oak City Cares, Durham Technical Community College Foundation, Triangle Family Services, NC School of Science and Mathematics, and Beth El Synagogue.

Prior to working with moss+ross, she was the Development Assistant at SECU Family House at UNC Hospitals and at Caring House, both of which are hospital hospitality houses in the Triangle region.  Her extensive experience with data management helped her improve the integrity of their constituent databases and generate tailored mailing lists and reliable reports to support productive fundraising efforts.

Before entering the non-profit world, LisaCaitlin was the Director of Quality Management at The Durham Center (now part of Alliance Behavioral Healthcare), the agency charged with managing mental health, substance abuse and developmental disability services for Durham County.  She was responsible for the collection, analysis and reporting of data for statewide outcome measures, as well as county-specific evaluations.

She received her undergraduate degree in psychological and brain sciences from Johns Hopkins University and her graduate degree in clinical psychology from Duke University.  Her graduate school work focused on the analysis of behavioral interventions used to improve the psychosocial impact of disease-related persistent pain, particularly for patients with cancer and arthritis.

LisaCaitlin has called Durham home since 2003. She volunteers with the League of Upper Extremity Wrestling Women of Durham which has raised more than $100,000 for local non-profits since 2010 through ladies’ arm-wrestling tournament fundraisers.  In 2011, she was named a Herald-Sun “Grit Award” winner for her volunteer work with LUEWWD and with the Triangle chapter of RESULTS, an international advocacy organization dedicated to ending poverty.
