“I’ve had a love affair with Pike Place Market my whole life, yet never knew the depths of the market community until recently. I’m incredibly honored to work with Pike Place Market Foundation, where I not only get to plan some of the best events in the city, but also contribute to the greater good of our amazing community!”
Professional background: With a Communications degree from Washington State University (Go Cougs!), I spent most of my extensive career in advertising analytics, finance and management for Disney Interactive Media Group and Amazon.com. Then, I decided to grab the bull by the horns and steer my professional life toward what I’m truly passionate about – planning events that honor and celebrate our city with a non-profit organization that helps touch the lives of the Seattle community. I always knew I wanted to make the world a better place – I just didn’t know how!
Why do I love my job? The Pike Place Market Foundation is a powerful, caring and impactful organization full of delightful and inspiring individuals who truly want to help others. I’m so thrilled to work with these people and have a hand in creating events here at Pike Place Market. It’s experiences like these that make life great – eating, drinking, dancing the night away in one of the coolest locations in the world, all to help our community thrive. What could be better than that!?
Fun Fact: You can also find me performing and teaching improv at Unexpected Productions, the improvisational theatre company right here at the Market Theatre at the Gum Wall. I like to think I’m changing the world for the better here too – one laugh at a time!
