Much of my career has been grounded in the arts. I have played roles in community development as an artist, teacher and nonprofit administrator. Before coming to Propel, I spent ten years with the Central MN Arts Board- a Regional Arts Council serving St. Cloud and a 4-county region in Central Minnesota. There I was responsible for implementing regional grant programs and community programming to foster learning about race and the arts. I am a former board member and current Art Task Force member with the Great River Children’s Museum and a current board member with Create Community.
As a Fiscal Sponsorship Consultant, I get to draw from these experiences to support the growth and capacity of groups who share Propel’s (and my own) commitment to equity and justice.
In my free time, I like to kayak, listen to news podcasts, hike with my dog, hunt for mushrooms and make things with my hands.
