    What is your role?

    I manage our websites, blog, social media platforms as well as writing for articles, publications and designing presentations.  My outreach responsibilities involve connecting campus with partner organizations for service opportunities and facilitating a network of universities pursuing place-based community engagement initiatives. 

    What is your favorite part about working at the CCE?

    The University’s commitment to sustained and focused community engagement is what drew me in, but it is the people doing the incredible work on the ground that continue to give my work meaning.  I am honored to be a part of this joyful, driven and thoughtful team.  This team approaches everything they do with zeal—from office kickball games to serving students, staff, faculty and community.

    What is your professional and educational background?

    I graduated from Whitman College in 2012 with a B.A. in Politics.  I worked in fund development and communications for an Eastside affordable housing organization, Imagine Housing, before joining the team here at the CCE. I am currently enrolled in Seattle University's Master of Public Administration program.

    What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

    I climb and do photography in my spare time. I'm a huge Parks and Rec fan and my long term life goal is to become Leslie Knope.
