Annie had a first career in the healthcare industry before returning to college in 2015. She earned a BA in Multidisciplinary Studies from Western Washington University and then, armed with passions for social justice and creative nonfiction, enrolled at Seattle University where she has earned a graduate certificate in Fundraising Leadership and is currently completing an MA in Nonprofit Leadership. 


In addition to being a member of the Grant Professionals Association and Puget Sound Grantwriters, she also holds a certificate from Spark the Fire Grantwriting and is the founder and writer of the philanthropy-related website Common Good Northwest. 


When not researching, writing, or buried in grad school projects, you can find her at home in Seattle with her dog and cat, Frankie and Violet, hopefully enjoying a rainy Pacific Northwest day with a good book or a (preferably British) program and a cup of tea.
