I live and work in Pendleton, Oregon, where my career has focused on fundraising and development activities within rural communities across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Before finding a home in eastern Oregon, I lived most of my life in the Willamette Valley and earned a BA from the University of Oregon and an MBA in Nonprofit Management from Marylhurst University. My work at RDI includes co-facilitating “Ready, Set, Grant!” and managing organization-wide advancement efforts.
Outside of RDI, I spend my time with friends at our local pizza place, at the beach as often as possible, in the garden, or immersed in some kind of creative project, usually quilting and lately collage. I’m delighted to join RDI as the Partnerships & Fund Development Manager, and look forward to advancing my passions of working with people, making connections, and supporting strong communities.
