I am the founder of PixelSpoke, a digital marketing agency that specializes in credit unions. My passion for credit unions and their mission also led me to start The Remarkable Credit Union podcast, one of the first podcasts to focus specifically on trends and challenges in the credit union space.
I am deeply passionate about helping entrepreneurs to grow and thrive through volunteer activities promoting education. I’ve worked on multiple academic papers studying success factors in entrepreneurship and believe deeply in the importance of bringing scientific thinking to small and midsize companies. I organized the local B Corp Board for the city of Portland, OR; launched the Portland Accelerator program, a local incubator for growth-oriented businesses; ran the business education curriculum for a US State Department international leadership program; and served as one of 20 delegates to the 2011 G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit in Nice, France.
Social justice plays a large part in my life. I’ve frequently traveled to Dilley, TX to volunteer with the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, which works with Central American mothers and their children who are fleeing horrific gang violence and other persecution.
