Welcome to our newest team member Jessica Sage, who is serving as our new marketing and events manager. Jessica has a background in nonprofit development, higher education administration, and academic writing instruction. Her responsibilities as Marketing and Events Manager include oversight of social media and communications, coordination of global WIRe events, digital administration, and all things marketing.
She holds an MA in critical theory and research from Pacific Northwest College of Art and a BA in philosophy and art theory from The Evergreen State College. Outside of her non-profit work, she has developed partnerships within local and slow food organizations, working directly with farmers and food cooperatives to foster farm-to-table relationships. She has contributed to several art-based publications and served as a representative for the Washington State Arts Commission. She is also a devoted proponent of women’s rights and racial justice and has volunteered with organizations such as the YWCA in the service of eliminating racism and empowering women.
Jessica spends her spare time forging in the forest, reading, and cooking for everyone she knows. She lives in Portland with her partner and an inordinate amount of plants.
