Originally from Michigan, I have spent the last 12 years working in leadership and community development in rural communities in the Upper Peninsula. After recently earning a master’s degree in economics from the University of Oregon, I am joining RDI as the Impact and Engagement Manager. In this position, I will have the privilege of working with the Rural Community Leadership Program and developing relationships with communities across the Pacific Northwest. I am excited to share my passion for leveraging rural communities’ greatest assets- their people!
In my free time, you can find me exploring hiking trails with my golden retriever or sailing competitively on a range of boats including Lido 14s, Santa 20s, and Lasers.
