My professional experience is primarily in the fields of fundraising and executive assistance -- I have been an executive assistant with Corra Films, Envoy Gallery, and Reed College. I have helped fundraise for the Working Families Party of New York and Reed College. My passion, however, is for community organizing and support. As listed below I have experience with working groups in the areas of sexual assault prevention and response, creating safer space policies, and economic and housing justice. I'm an incredibly creative, resilient, and hardworking person with an interest in providing community support in any way I can. I plan to receive an MA in counseling andwould be happiest working in a support position, especially with children or youth.
I earned this degree in tandem with my High School Diploma from Bard High School Early College.

Two to four times a week, I joined a cohort of fifteen other student callers to contact alumni and parents about donating to Reed. Our calling style is very informal, warm, and conversational—although my goal is to encourage the prospect to pledge a gift to Reed, the Annual Fund is also very concerned with alumni outreach, relations and data upkeep. Thus, it is equally my responsibility to gather relevant data, enhance the possibility of future pledges, and above all make sure that the prospect is enjoying the time we spend in conversation. The ultimate goal is that, though talking with me, prospects really feel like they're getting a sense of the Reed College that they remember, love, and want to support. The calling platform used was DialVision, and is what I'm most familiar with in terms of phone fundraising and electronic databases.
A Brooklyn-based, Row E third party organization
I worked as a regional canvasser in the tri-state area; I commuted to neighborhoods in which the WFP was currently backing a candidate or raising awareness and went door-to-door to converse with registered voters about whatever issue the WFP was currently bringing to light, often asking them to sign a statement of support, a petition, or to do a myriad of other tasks to benefit their community. This job demanded excellent people skills and real emotional and physical endurance.

I sorted, alphabetized, filed, catalogued, and shredded all essential, confidential materials for the admissions office; I was entrusted with the task of creating, handling, and error-proofing the files of all applying and prospective students throughout the year. I also organized and put together bulk mailings to all prospective, accepted, waitlisted, and denied students, as well as performing typical assistant duties for my senior colleagues. I did this job during the school year only.

FSU is a college-funded organization dedicated to making Reed College a safer space for trans*, queer, and female-identified people. FSU provides a space where feminists of all genders and orientations can share, work, and grow in solidarity. In 2012 - 2013 I organized Take Back the Night at Reed, drafted a statement in solidarity with UNC survivor Landen Gambill, brought the AORTA collective to Reed, and organized a support group for people affected by hate speech that occurred at a November 2012 event.
Safer Space Working Group - Co-Founder, Organizer

1/2013 – present: two hours bi-monthly
The Safer Space Working Group is a consortium facilitated and sponsored by Reed's Multicultural Resource Center, the Feminist Student Union, the Assistant Dean of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response, and the Health and Counseling Center. We have met bi-monthly since January with the goal of drafting a safer space policy for Reed's campus, better educating the community about trauma, and creating more designated safer spaces around campus. I suggested this group be founded after a small administrative discussion about "honor" at Reed and work with Dayspring to organize and facilitate meetings and resource allocation.
Reed Campus Climate Survey Committee - Student Organizer
