Cambria Skvarka

Cambria brings over 15 years of experience supporting organizations to build teams and spaces that are delightful, people centered, and mission aligned. She has worked with and led teams focused on leadership development, disaster relief, housing, education, and entrepreneurship.

As Principal Consultant of Cambria Diane Consulting, Cambria supports executive leaders with talent development, strategic visioning, and programmatic redesign.  Her coaching and facilitation is grounded in human centered design, lean startup methodology, and emergent strategy. Cambria Diane Consulting focuses on supporting mission driven organizations and has worked with a range of clients who specialize in diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), workforce development, transformative justice, and conservation.

Previously, Cambria spent almost a decade supporting community based education entrepreneurs at 4.0 Schools. As Chief of Staff, she led the team through the creation of new human capital systems and role redesigns, while transitioning the organization’s decision making and accountability structures. As a member of the founding team, she built, facilitated, and coordinated the dual city expansion of the Essentials program, which supported over 975 early stage education entrepreneurs in over 40 states to pilot their ideas with their communities. Cambria continues to support education leaders through her consulting clients and as a board member at Capital Learning Academy, a micro school based in Washington, D.C. Prior to 4.0, she managed logistics and AmeriCorps training at Rebuilding Together New Orleans to support the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans post Hurricane Katrina.

Cambria has called New Orleans home for the past 15 years with her husband and two young kids who are all anxiously awaiting the return of Jazz Fest.  When she’s not out adventuring with her little crew, she’s most likely tinkering on another renovation project for their 100 year old house, working on their next Mardi Gras costumes or trying to psych herself up for half marathon #4.
