Describe your role at Bellwether:
I’m the Project Manager for our Compliance and Property Management departments. My team provides training and support to site staff, and I also help maintain compliance with Bellwether’s funders.
What do you find most meaningful about your work?
In my role I get to look for things that aren’t working and help create solutions. I also collaborate with a lot of great people across different teams. The end goal is always to improve the experience of our applicants, residents, and staff
Tell us about a woman that you admire or are inspired by (past or present).
I am a big fan of Eva Walker; she fronts the local band The Black Tones and is also an awesome KEXP DJ. I am grateful for musicians who are finding ways to create and perform when so many crucial resources have been stripped away by the pandemic. Many people (myself included) rely on music now more than ever to bring us joy and connection.
