I arrived at Ostara via the performing arts world. I’ve held administrative positions at non-profit theatre companies in Seattle and the Bay Area, gaining meaningful experience in many modes of fundraising with a special emphasis on grant writing and grants management. At Ostara, I support our non-profit clients with contracting and invoicing, coordinate data management and other internal systems, create our monthly newsletter, and keep the office running smoothly so that the rest of the team can focus on serving you.
I’m also the Producing Director of The Williams Project, a national theatre ensemble that strives to make theatrical excellence accessible to diverse and engaged audiences, while paying artists a living wage. As the six-year-old company’s executive leader, I helm its fundraising strategy, marketing and communications, finance, and nuts-and-bolts business operations - giving me a deep appreciation of the in-the-trenches challenges of growing a small organization's budget and impact!
