Mari joined Northwest Passage after four years at the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) where she most recently served as Political Director, overseeing wins in nearly every state in the West. Prior to the DLCC, some of Mari’s earlier experience includes working in the office of Congressman Peter DeFazio in Washington, DC, and as Campaign Services Director for the Oregon House Democrats in her home town, Portland, Oregon.
Through Mari’s work nationally, she built up an impressive network of relationships in all sectors of politics and is particularly adept at working with stakeholders and allies. At NWP, Mari is our lead on legislative campaigns and brings a personal flare to every race she works on.
When Mari isn’t politicking, she teaches fitness classes at The Bar Method, and raises money for local non-profits as an NAA Registered Auctioneer. She enjoys traveling, and spending time with her family. Mari has a degree in Political Science from PSU.
