About Louisa


I believe in expanding horizons and learning – anything that broadens our minds beyond the here and now, allowing us to learn from the past and innovate for the future.

I am interested in the durability of a community: city planning and green buildings, creating new objects from old trash, history of the Pacific Northwest, and ways that natural design leads by example.

I’m curious about new scientific breakthroughs and how technology will shape the future of marketing and communication. I believe that music, art and culture are equally necessary and inspiring, especially on a local community level.

I have published articles in media in magazines and newspapers, created communications for several multi-million dollar nonprofit fundraising campaigns, and become more involved with my community as a result. I have covered everything from sustainable engineering and architecture, aerospace, new education programs and war history.

I earned a BA in English and Journalism from Clark University (2010) and a Technical Writing certification from Bellevue College (2015), and I continue to take professional development courses. I currently work at The Museum of Flight in Seattle as the Development Communications Coordinator.

    I’m a retired United pilot and I read the article re N7001U with interest.
    I also wonder if you are descended from the Oklahoma Gaylords? My mother was a Gaylord. Her father was Winfred Gaylord, and he grew up with E.K. Gaylord in Kansas and later moved to Massachusetts.
    I look forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Henry,

      Thanks for reaching out! I’m also really excited for the 727 final flight. I’ve been writing lots of member emails and website copy for the event at The Museum of Flight, and it’s amazing the interest and support we’ve received!

      My grandfather was Henry Gaylord, a pilot instructor at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. My dad was born there, but grew up in Connecticut when they moved. I know there’s lots of cousins in New England, but I’m not sure if they’re distantly related to the Gaylords in Oklahoma.
