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 sustainable engineering and architecture, local music and art, aerospace, military history, STEM education and philanthropy. My writing has appeared in newspapers, magazines and news blogs around the Pacific Northwest, as well as a book from Ecotone Publishing, a subsidiary of the sustainability-focused International Living Future Institute. I’ve also managed communications for several multi-million dollar fundraising campaigns for nonprofit organizations. You can learn more on my LinkedIn profile.
I believe in the importance of expanding our 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, which is a little bit of everything. Whether you’re looking for a new recipe, Pacific Northwest history, net-zero energy buildings or a book recommendation – there’s something here for you! Thanks for stopping by.
