I come to Propel with with broad experience in the nonprofit sector, including time spent working in arts management, direct service, philanthropy, and nonprofit capacity building. I find joy in connecting nonprofits with resources, and am very excited to partner with emerging, community-based nonprofits as they create systemic change, remove barriers, grow their infrastructure, and build a better world.
I have a Master of Public Administration degree with a certificate in Nonprofit Management from the University of Washington, and a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Oregon. When I’m not working or volunteering you can find me exploring Minnesota, cooking up a new recipe, or watching my daughters play sports.
Random fact: I have twice performed as a festival mascot. First as “Billy Bravo” the cello mascot for the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival, and second as the kiwi bird mascot for the New Zealand International Arts Festival.
