Tulaine began her career in business strategy consulting. She enjoyed her experience, yet found more joy in the weekends she spent mentoring and coaching a group of young women who lived in her neighborhood. This experience led Tulaine to devote her work to the education and protection of young people. She since has played central leadership roles in the launch and expansion of several schools and nonprofit organizations, both domestically and internationally. Tulaine has worked in many capacities in youth and education oriented non-profits, including Citizen Schools, YouthBuild USA, and the United Way Massachusetts Bay & Merrimack Valley. Tulaine has also served as the Founder and President of New Resource Strategies, a consulting firm that enables mission-driven organizations to address major operational, fiscal, and strategic challenges.
Tulaine received a master’s degree in Public Policy from Tufts University and earned her B.A. from Smith College in Northampton, MA. She is a Senior Fellow at the Center for Collaborative Leadership at the University of Massachusetts, a Community Enrichment Fellow at Northeastern University, and a Neighborhood Fellow at Tufts University. She is also an Adjunct Professor at Lesley University. Tulaine serves as the Co-Chair of The State of Black Boston, a research and community development initiative that analyzes the social and economic issues affecting Boston’s Black population.
Tulaine is also an accomplished cellist and writer; she has written and produced four original plays, and she and her mother are the co-founders of Onyx, Inc., a theatre production company.
