My Story

Tina Metzer, Vice President and Co-Founder

Tina Metzer brings high-level, project management, and organizational development experience to National Center for Resource Development. From non-profits to the private sector, Tina possesses an array of skills and experiences. Tina is a native West Virginian and has worked in the nonprofit community as a career and volunteer for most of her life.  

Committed to advancing green sustainable solutions and mitigating the impact of climate change. Tina is dedicated to working tirelessly to move environmental initiatives forward and contribute to a healthier and more sustainable future. 


Tina is deeply committed to identifying and cultivating opportunities that can enhance the growth and prosperity of rural communities including bridging the digital divide.

Tina developed a strong sense of devotion to rural communities, non-profits, and entrepreneurship at an early age. Like most young people after graduating, Tina left West Virginia for better opportunities. However, a strong sense of allegiance brought Tina and her family back to West Virginia. Early on in Tina’s career, as Project Manager of a large industrial auctioneering firm, Tina saw the impact of large companies leaving rural areas – completely changing the landscape and economic stability of a region.​

With her entrepreneurial venture, Attic Books and Treasures and Attic Books Promotions, Ms. Metzer, coordinated an array of authors, booksellers, and resellers to market products online and specialized in rare, out of print books, vintage magazines, and ephemera.

Most recently Ms. Metzer has managed a variety of projects with a focus on rural issues, Agriculture and Technology for Eastern WV Community and Technical College as well as Behavioral Business, LLC. 

Ms. Metzer holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Bridgewater College and a Master of Science Degree in Human Resources from Towson State University.  When not working, Tina is usually found with her daughters as well as her many pets; relaxation is hiking and reading.  

NCRD was founded on the principle of collaboration and community.  During her experiences one of the most prolific issues which stood out in non-profits, entrepreneurship, government agencies and more was the lack of communication, collaboration, identification of challenges and lack of ecosystem development, Tina hopes that NCRD will bridge this gap!


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
