Leesa Schandel : Director of Development

As the Director of Development, I oversee efforts to keep the station thriving through financial support from individuals and foundations. At KEXP, I use many of the skills I've gained throughout my career - in association management and, most recently, in university arts development. I've listened to KEXP/KCMU since 1991, when I finally lived close enough to the transmitter to pick up the signal. I'm thrilled to be working with so many smart, creative people and for an organization that has such a huge impact on my life. It truly is my dream job.
