I earned my BA in English and Journalism from Clark University (2010) and a Technical Writing certification from Bellevue College (2015). I currently work in the fundraising department at The Museum of Flight in Seattle, where I write everything from campaign newsletters, magazine articles, video storyboards, website content and thank you letters to donors.
I have researched and published pieces on topics like sustainable engineering and architecture, local music and art, aerospace, military history, STEM education and philanthropy. My writing has appeared in newspapers, magazines, news blogs around the Pacific Northwest and a book from Ecotone Publishing. I’ve also managed communications for several multi-million dollar nonprofit fundraising campaigns. You can learn more on my LinkedIn profile.
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. It’s important to be involved in my community, which is a large part of why I am interested in nonprofit work. I’m curious how technology will shape the future of marketing and communication.
My blog covers everything I’m interested in. Whether you’re looking for a new recipe, Pacific Northwest history, net-zero energy buildings or a book recommendation – there’s something for everyone here!
