Duties: I am part of the development and communications team working to raise funds for magical wishes!
Prior experience: Development and Communications Intern at Make-A-Wish Oregon
Education: Bachelor degree in Public Relations, University of Oregon School of Journalism; minors in business and communication
Personal Accomplishment: Making my dream of working at an organization that I am truly passionate about and making a difference in other people’s lives a reality.
Hobbies: Traveling, dancing, singing, reading, and enjoying life. Hobbies I hope to pick up in the next year are learning to play the piano and learning a second language!

Two best things about working at Make-A-Wish:
- Meeting adorable wish kids and seeing the joy that this organization and our hard work bring to their lives.
- The amazing coworkers I get to work with every day. They make coming to work that much more enjoyable.
Other tidbits: My last name has provided my life with endless nicknames (e.g., poppy, jpopp, popcorn, popstar, etc.) I don’t know what I’ll do when I get married and have a new last name!
