“When you walk through the market, it’s like you’ve left downtown Seattle and are in a small community outside of the city full of vibrant colors, delicious smells and amazing people. I am so excited to be a part of this little village and to support everyone in it!”

Professional Background: I love community connections- building them, fostering them, all of it! Prior to joining the Market Foundation team, I was a member of the fundraising team at Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington, reinventing program processes and creating new avenues for partnership. Before that I was at the Puget Sound Business Journal and responsible for their events, from honoree coordination to décor.

Why do I love my job? What I love most about my career is being able to connect with many incredible individuals within the community and being able to bring these individuals together to support a cause or a mission. I love understanding where passions lie for certain individuals and helping them see how they can make an impact on the community. Being able to interact with community members while helping others is truly the best combination!

Fun fact: I am a part time teacher to students in Costa Rica!
