Leadership Experience

I have been working with nonprofits for over a decade now and have enjoyed finding ways to more effectively communicate their work even when resources are tight.

Out of college, I spent 6 months in the highlands of Peru doing volunteer work and that confirmed my desire to pursue my career in the nonprofit sector.

I spent several years working at HealthPoint, a community health organization in the greater Seattle area, working from front desk receptionist to Planning & Development Coordinator. It was enlightening to work with patients face-to-face and then work in the marketing and fundraising department to tell their stories.

Born and raised in Montana, I eventually felt the pull to return home. I moved to Billings where I had the opportunity to work for United Way of Yellowstone County, overseeing marketing and fundraising efforts as the organization continues to serve as a hub for collective impact for their community. There I led the organization through some re-branding and worked on their annual campaign.

I then took a brief pause to be with home with my babies before landing my current job as Communications and Outreach Manager for Montana Community Foundation, overseeing marketing and communications. This also means I get to work closely with our WFM and PH team!

How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse

I will be a resource women. I am also happy to offer marketing and communication help to nonprofits and small businesses.
