Jessie Bond Project Manager

My passion is making information more accessible to people. Throughout my career, I’ve led projects that form the bridge between technology, communities, and mission.

As a grad from Colby College in Maine with a degree in Human Development, I’ve worn many hats throughout my career—from building community engagement and marketing campaigns for nonprofits, to running a beer-tasting walking tour company, to leading government programs and large web-based technology projects. At the heart of everything I’ve done has been helping create technology solutions that connect people with information and create shared understanding and alignment around a mission.

At PixelSpoke, I love working with our team of problem-solvers to serve clients in helping to reach communities more effectively. I believe the success of any project is measured in how well the needs of the people involved are met.

 

 

Personal Highlights

What I love about Portland – I love how you can constantly reinvent yourself here. I’ve been able to dabble in so many different interests—from a class on whiskey-making, to Design Week Portland talks, to storytelling workshops. There’s always more to explore here!

My favorite place ever traveled – Costa Rica. I had the unique experience of spending a summer in college studying sustainability and eco-tourism in Costa Rica. I got to know some of the local communities and collect data on the relationship between a national park and its local residents.

Hobbies – Being in the outdoors, traveling with my wife, chocolate chip cookies (does that count as a hobby?), brewing local Portland coffee, learning, entrepreneurship, movies, organizing things.

Weirdest thing I’ve ever eaten – Fried crickets…quite crunchy!

Bonus fact! I started my career as a seasonal, nomadic naturalist leading nature hikes for kids and adults at the Maroon Bells in Aspen, Colorado.
