Listener Candidate for the KPFT Local Station Board
I was KPFT Membership Director for KPFT 90.1 FM from 2010-2013 before I discovered a passion for labor relations. I organized various station fundraisers and motivated volunteers and colleagues in support roles for events. Once volunteer registrations moved to a digital form, I was integral in implementing a registration process that increased volunteer participation by 50% and donations by 40%.These details and more show that I am a professional in maximizing operational efficiency and financial management.
