Thomasina leverages her extensive experience in law and philanthropy, and as a business owner who has worked with family, to help enterprising families navigate the emotional and financial complexities characteristic of families who share assets. She uses her multi-disciplinary perspective and understanding of family systems and family dynamics to help family enterprises bring a higher degree of intentionality to facilitating their internal communications, making better informed decisions, and developing their human, intellectual and social capital as part of maximizing their financial capital. Her work includes governance, leadership and board development, strategic planning, and strategic use of philanthropy as a tool to strengthen family enterprises.

Before entering the field of family enterprise consulting, Thomasina practiced law in Miami for 20 years. She became a partner in one of Florida's top full-service law firms in a record three years, and was recognized as one of the Top 250 Lawyers in South Florida. Her clients included global corporations as well as family businesses and closely-held enterprises in a range of industries, such as banking, real estate development, construction and hospitality, and accounting, law and healthcare professional service firms.
In 2005, Thomasina relocated to New York City, and transitioned into the field of philanthropy. As a Program Officer at the Ford Foundation, she made more than $42 million in grant investments to non-profit organizations across the United States to increase civic engagement and build non-profit infrastructure and leadership capacities of local communities to participate meaningfully in shaping public policy.
Thomasina has undergone extensive training in working with enterprising families, including earning both the Family Firm Institute's Certificate in Family Business Advising and Certificate in Family Wealth Advising. She is currently enrolled in the yearlong post-graduate program at The Bowen Center for the Study of the Family. Thomasina is a member of the Family Firm Institute and its Next Gen Study Group, Galliard Family Business Advisor Institute, and the Purposeful Planning Institute. She is also a 21/64 Certified Philanthropy, and is in the process of completing the requirements for the American College of Financial Services' Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® designation.
