“More than fresh fish and produce, the Market is a model for how a diverse neighborhood stimulates a dynamic, economically viable community.”
Professional background: My passion is to empower people to make a positive impact in their community. I have worked in communications and fundraising at Wellspring Family Services, FareStart and the University of Washington Alumni Association and served on the board of ROOTS Young Adult Shelter. Prior to my nonprofit career, I was a journalist in Indiana, The Netherlands and locally for Real Change Newspaper. I have a journalism and telecommunications degree from Ball State University.
Why I love my job? My approach to public relations & fundraising is through community building and I firmly believe there is no better place to do this than Pike Place Market.
Fun Fact! By night, I enjoy tearing it up on the roller derby track!
