I grew up in small town Wisconsin, about an hour outside of Green Bay. In 2014, I moved to Eugene, Oregon, to attend the University of Oregon and fell in love with the unique culture. I hold a Masters in Nonprofit Management from the University of Oregon and a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership. In 2017, I joined RDI as the Development and Operations Associate. I provide support to fund development through grant writing, and program support to the Rural Economic Vitality team. I also act as administrative support for the Oregon Rural Development Council (ORDC). I am passionate about the nonprofit world and lend my time to many local nonprofits. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the beautiful Northwest, hanging out with my two cats or trying new coffee shops.
