Nadja is inspired by the way that the Marguerite Casey Foundation continuously uplifts the voices of communities to create change for themselves and across networks. She believes social media has a powerful role to play in pursuing equity, and is excited to practice social storytelling that prioritizes and centers communities and the issues they face.
Before joining the Foundation as the Creative & Storytelling Partner, Nadja worked at Edelman, helping organize social media for Microsoft clients. So far in her career, she has gained marketing and communications experience at Lionsgate and Time Inc., as well as at a small film production studio in Los Angeles. Nadja studied Media Studies, Africana Studies and English at Pomona College. She joined the Foundation in 2019, and was a member of the Philanthropy Northwest Momentum Fellowship, Class of 2021.
