President and Chief Executive Officer
When Rana took on the role of leading the Chimp Haven clan in 2017, she brought with her a lifelong passion for animals and more than 25 years of nonprofit leadership and fundraising expertise. Rana’s recipe for happiness is leading staff and donors to do big things for animals (and some artisan dark chocolate doesn’t hurt either). When she’s not living the chimp life at Chimp Haven, Rana can be found chilling out in Austin, Texas, with her family or planning her next travel adventure.
Favorite Chimp: Hope – “I love her unique look and that her alopecia doesn’t slow her down for a second. She’s got a sweet, welcoming personality and she’s a great friend to all of the chimps in her group.”
