“I can honestly say I have the best job in the city! Every day as I walk through the market, I’m surrounded by our mission: a neighborhood where low-income people find dignity, hope and community.
By giving to The Market Foundation YOU make stories like the ones you’ll find on our website possible. The difference we make together is more than just a day in someone’s life, we are changing a community. Together, we create the legacy that is the Pike Place Market.”

“More than fresh fish and produce, the Market is a model for how a diverse neighborhood stimulates a dynamic, economically viable community. My approach to Public Relations & Marketing is through community building and I firmly believe there is no better place to do this than Pike Place Market.
Professional background: My passion is to empower people to make a positive impact in their community. I have worked in communications and fundraising at Wellspring Family Services, FareStart and the University of Washington Alumni Association and served on the board of ROOTS Young Adult Shelter. Prior to my nonprofit career, I was a journalist in Indiana, The Netherlands and locally for Real Change Newspaper.
Why I love my job? My approach to Public Relations & Marketing is through community building and I firmly believe there is no better place to do this than Pike Place Market.
Fun Fact: By night, I enjoy tearing it up on the roller derby track!

“Every year, Pike Place Market relies on thousands of volunteers to care for our Market community. Thank you to our incredible volunteer team for all that you do – your time spent and talents shared are truly inspiring!”
Professional background: I graduated from Willamette University in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology. After moving to Seattle in the summer of 2012 I got a job with EarthCorps, a local non-profit focused on environmental restoration and education. I applied to the AmeriCorps VISTA program and was offered a position with the Market Foundation in early 2013.
Why do I love my job? Connecting people with meaningful projects that support our Market community is by far the best part of my job. Each day I am humbled to work with such dedicated volunteers and I look forward to watching our program grow.
Fun fact: I recently threw the first pitch at a Mariner’s game.
