Background: Born and raised in Gainesville, FL I graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Forest Resources and Conservation. Not long after graduating I waved goodbye to the Sunshine State and made my way to the West Coast where my introduction to non-profit work as an AmeriCorps VISTA changed my career trajectory and brought me to the Pike Place Market Foundation.
What I love about my job: I love working in an environment where no two days are the same. One day I’m behind the computer screen compiling data for reports and the next I’m shoveling soil for the rooftop garden. I am thrilled to meaningfully contribute to a team of passionate individuals and excited to work with the incredible Market community.
Fun fact: Since moving to Seattle I’ve learned that 50 degrees is indeed not “freezing” and a good rain jacket makes all the difference. I have a new appreciation for sunny days and take full advantage of them as much as possible!
