Professional Background: I was born and raised across the water in Poulsbo WA, and graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a degree in business marketing. I have spent most of my career in nonprofit arts and culture, working at The 5th Avenue Theatre and Village Theatre doing everything from box office to group sales to media buying to managing marketing and communications. Coming to the Pike Place Market Foundation is the perfect next step and a dream come true!

Why do I love my job? To me, the Market is so much more than a tourist destination or iconic Seattle landmark. It’s an incredible representation and promise of what a caring and sustainable community can be. I am grateful to be able to highlight the people who make the Market special and help tell the stories of this incredible community!

Fun fact: I love all things vintage, I’m obsessed with 70’s disco fashion and brightly colored midcentury bathroom fixtures. I have found some pretty wild treasures on my thrifting and antiquing adventures!
