Lashaunda Watson


I work in the nonprofit sector at Compass Working Capital as an Outreach and Engagement Specialist. Prior to Compass, I spent 19 years working in the healthcare industry for companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Steward Healthcare Network. I’m a committed volunteer: I’ve served on NeighborWorks Housing Solutions’ Board of Directors for over 13 years; I’m active in helping to improve the Boston Public School system; and I advocate for several nonprofits in the Greater Boston area working to eradicate poverty and improve the community, including Empath, School Facts Boston, Higher Ground Boston, Dress For Success, and Union Capital Boston. I’m currently pursuing a degree in business communications at SNHU. O connected with GenUnity in 2021 as a member of the Housing program. I’m now a facilitator, creating the space for others to connect with one another and have a greater impact.
