Digital Fundraising Officer
Kjerstin is the Digital Fundraising Officer for KUOW’s membership team. She has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism from California State University, Chico and Northwestern University, respectively. Kjerstin focused her passion for storytelling and digital media into supporting nonprofit and advocacy organizations after finishing graduate school, inspired to give back by the time she spent working with a small high school on Chicago’s west side and contributing to a Holocaust survivor story archive project. She was ecstatic to join the KUOW team, and particularly about the opportunity to support the ever-growing need for independent, nonprofit journalism.
