I am a 2010 Pacific Lutheran University graduate who since then has done a year of Americorps, traveled extensively, and most recently worked for three years as a care advocate at Lifelong, a local non-profit that provides services to individuals with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses. I have begun making a transition from direct services to indirect services with non-profits and being an event intern for Jolkona Catalyst is part of that transition. I am also currently fundraising with Social Justice Fund Northwest and supporting the logistics/event planning of two other non-profit fundraisers. When I’m not event planning or fundraising, I am serving delicious food at Shaker + Spear, a new seafood and cocktail restaurant in downtown Seattle or out hiking in the Cascades.
