Fundraising Quality Assurance Associate, Wikimedia Foundation

About me

I started working for the Wikimedia Foundation in November 2010 as a member of the 2010-2011 fundraiser and was brought on full-time in March 2011 as Development Associate in the Community Department. Previously I've worked for the PETA Foundation and the Virginia Symphony. I originally hail from Chesapeake, Virginia.

My work

I work with the rest of the fundraising team to make sure our forms, pages, and banners are as seamless as possible, both through testing and by managing our response to donor and community inquries. I have a passion for helping people and telling them about the Wikimedia movement.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
