As a writer, I try to avoid cliche’s, but…I love to tell and be told stories. You can learn so much about a person when they tell a story: what they notice, where they come from, what they dream of, and what they want to keep hidden. I found my way to marketing and communications because the work of it appeared in every nonprofit job I’ve had over the past ten years and it was the thing I enjoyed most: talking about and building the capacity for meaningful and transformative work in the world(s) around me. You might’ve seen me around the sector when I worked for: Augsburg University, Arts Midwest, or the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. In 2012-2013, I completed a year of service through Lutheran Volunteer Corps in San Francisco, CA. In 2017, I got my MFA in Creative Writing from Augsburg University
