My work in marketing and social change started in third grade. After collecting hundreds of sand dollars from San Francisco’s Ocean Beach and then having no idea what to do with them, a friend and I founded The Sandy Sensations. Our mission was simple—to save the world. We tackled this humble goal by selling the sand dollars in front of my house and donating the proceeds to environmental nonprofits.
The Sandy Sensations’ ultimate downfall was its limited inventory, but I had other ideas brewing. At age 21, I co-founded The Glimpse Foundation, dedicated to sharing stories of real life abroad, which merged with The National Geographic Society in 2008. I’ve also worked in marketing for the national nonprofit KaBOOM! and the statewide nonprofit Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN). I write weekly stories on Medium about motherhood, work, race, and the end of the world.
At PixelSpoke, I’m excited to be working with a top-notch team to help mission-driven organizations pursue lofty goals.
