Meet our 2012 Swank Auction Coordinator! July 26, 2012

Filed under: Our Team,Swank — seattleworks @ 4:14 pm

Oh hi there. I’m Eleanor Blackford, owner of bash & bloom and the 2012 Swank Auction Coordinator. I’ve worked with non-profits for almost 10 years now and am so excited to join the Seattle Works team. Now, on a daily basis, I get to plan events, boss people around, and be creative – I’m kind of living my dream job! I live with two little rescue mutts named Ruckus and Albert, and probably talk about them far too much. But they’re just so awesome, I can’t help myself!

I was born in England, grew up in Minnesota, went to college in Wisconsin (Go Badgers!), and lived in DC for 6 years before finding out that Seattle is exactly where I’m supposed to be. My English blood means that I don’t mind the weather here at all – I’ll take gray and rainy over snot-freezing 30 below zero any day. I’ve loved my time at Seattle Works so far, think the staff is amazing, and can’t wait to help throw another fabulous Swank event.
