Designing graphics, engaging donors, coordinating communications and managing the team—Cherrie is akin to a chameleon that works fluidly across our internal operations and projects (while constantly trying to decipher her job description).
Prior to PeaceGeeks, Cherrie studied International Relations, did field research in Ethiopia on civil unrest surrounding presidential term limit extensions, and coordinated province-wide data collection for the BC Council for International Cooperation (BCCIC) on community-level stakeholders working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Her passion for PeaceGeeks comes from the ability to bridge her passions for global humanitarian issues and technology.
At PeaceGeeks, Cherrie's key focuses are developing our donor engagement and fund development strategy, as well as managing the PeaceGeeks brand and messaging across all channels and platforms. She is also presently the UX/UI designer for the Services Advisor Pathways project. Within our daily operations, Cherrie assists with managing the staff team and onboarding, coordinates events, sends out team and external communications, and picks up a diversity of tasks that fall in between.
