Nick Newcombe

Nick comes to ISB from the Alzheimer’s Association, Western & Central Washington State Chapter where he served as Director of Development.  Before relocating to Seattle and embarking on a career in non-profit fund development, Nick spent 20 years in the field of geriatrics in New York City where he was a founder of SeniorBridge, a for-profit, full-service elder and chronic care company recently acquired by Humana.  His interest in research traces back to his work as a social worker at Mt. Sinai Hospital with the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.   Nick began his work life as a professional musician on and off Broadway that included many years as the harpist for the world’s longest running musical, The Fantasticks.

Nick holds a Bachelors degree in Music Education and Performance from the University of Oregon, a Masters of Music Performance in Harp from the Manhattan School of Music and a Masters of Social Work from Hunter College School of Social Work. 

He is thrilled to be at ISB where he has the opportunity to bring to bear his varied experience and skills, his past and the present to help the Institute build futures.
