“Pike Place Market’s community is as rich and layered as its history. For many people who live and work in the market, it’s so much more than just a neighborhood, it is a place where people can live, shop, work, and care for each other. The Pike Place Market Foundation helps to maintain and fund the diversity and sustainability of this community.”
Professional background: I have a BA and MA in International Relations and have worked for NGOs and nonprofits for nearly my whole career. Before coming to The Foundation, I worked with Boys & Girls Clubs of King County as a Unit Director and Wellspring Family Services as a Community Engagement Manager. My approach to program development focuses on creating and sustaining social service programs where community and client can merge, and anyone and everyone has a chance to make an impact.
Why I love my job: I am thrilled to see the 40 year old plan for the completion of the Pike Place MarketFront coming to life! The Market Commons is a key piece of this expansion and I am more than excited to be able to bring my community building and project management experience to help shape this new resource for the Market community.
Fun Fact: I don’t like chocolate, ice cream, or cake. I am a good person though, I swear!
