Advocate. Storyteller. Mother of 3.
Hello and welcome to an edited slice of my life’s journey as a lifelong learner, passionate advocate for social justice and a mother of three wonderful humans!
I have a unique combination of nonprofit development and corporate marketing expertise. I have built and executed sales and marketing plans in both public and private sectors. I have also been a major gifts officer for a national nonprofit organization. Prior to my time in nonprofit, I enjoyed success as a marketing and public relations executive for companies such as Williams Sonoma and Nordstrom and was the founder and principal at two start-up PR and marketing agencies. In addition to my professional background, I have been a board member, advocate, and volunteer for various nonprofit organizations in education, advocacy, and social justice.
My career began in Seattle, WA, grew in San Francisco, CA and transitioned in Austin, TX. Along the way, met the man who allowed me to envision life as a wife and a mother. Three kids and one big move across the country, we have been happily ensconced in Austin TX, living fat and happy as a family of five and one adorable, vertically challenged doxie, Ollie.
