Richelle King

Throughout my nine years in the nonprofit sector, I've come to recognize intentionality, curiosity, accountability, and collaboration as guiding principles necessary for solving problems and achieving goals. With these principles, I offer my clients my expertise in community engagement, strategic planning, and storytelling.

My deep-seated desire to serve my community brought me to this work. My journey began as a volunteer with both the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico and Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. Soon after, I moved to Austin, Texas to finish my undergraduate degree. There, I served two terms as a national youth advisory council member for Planned Parenthood Federation of America and worked as a campus organizer for the Texas Freedom Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to defending LGBTQ rights, reproductive health, and voting rights. I received my bachelor's degree in Gender Studies with a focus on Government at the University of Texas at Austin.

After college, I moved to Seattle and worked as the Programs Coordinator at Washington Filmworks, the private nonprofit organization responsible for Washington State's film production incentive. There, I managed the applications and contribution campaign for the $3.5 million incentive program and oversaw the Film Leadership Council, an advisory group to the Washington Filmworks Board of Directors.

I currently work with Ostara as an independent consultant and owner of Witting Ficus Consulting.
