Finance and Contract Compliance Specialist
"This work is in line with my moral compass."
Nairod Woods describes himself as the front person for the finance team. He works with our Title X network to provide financial oversight and technical assistance. This financial oversight allows Every Body Texas “to make sure that the folks in our network have the funds to do the work they need to do,” says Woods. “If you can’t buy Plan B, you can’t give it to clients.”
A native of Queens, New York, Nairod first came to Texas as an undergrad to attend St. Edward’s University in Austin, where he later earned a Masters degree in Leadership and Change. Following graduation, he spent a year in China where he taught at local public schools and played rugby for one of China’s original rugby teams.
Although his professional life has been varied – working in higher education, teaching, and technology – he sees his primary role as an educator. His talent for digesting and repackaging information has helped our Title X network better understand the complexities of financial compliance with a multimillion-dollar federal grant.
Nairod lives with his wife and German shepherd in northwest Austin, TX.
