Communications and Outreach Associate
Grace arrived at HEAL Utah on crutches (post-knee operation) in the spring of 2018 to direct HEAL’s communication and media efforts, manage its online messaging, and to strategically integrate these elements into all of HEAL’s policy and grassroots campaigns.
Grace grew up in Ohio but left the Midwest to attend Boston College, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science, with a special focus on environmental policy. Between Boston and Salt Lake City, Grace has called many places “home,” including New Zealand, San Diego, and her backpack, which she spent four months living out of in Thailand, Cambodia, Nepal, and Ireland. Prior to joining HEAL Utah, she was a public relations consultant for nonprofits and worked in communications for a renewable energy and energy efficient financing company.
She is a proud turn signal user, Editor at Outdoor Women’s Alliance, dog obsessor (she and her partner have two mutts, Diorite and Mako), and bread baker. When Grace isn’t in the office, you can find her taking advantage of all Utah has to offer at the crag, on the trail, or on the slopes.
