With a BA in Psychology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and a lifelong background in music, Evan finds SMP to be the place where all her passions meet. Evan is the Community Outreach Director for Seattle Music Partners, which means she gets to coordinate collaborations with SMP's amazing partner organizations, connect students and volunteers to musical opportunities in the community, and manage communication with SMP's constituents.
Evan was a City Year Seattle/King County corps member at Aki Kurose Middle School in 2012-2013 and served as SMP's Americorps Program Coordinator when she joined the team in 2013. Evan is a member of the Seattle Women's Chorus and plays guitar, ukulele, electric bass, and sings in various bands/projects in Seattle. One of her newest passions is the trumpet, which she learned when she joined SMP, and her older passions include early child development/learning, reading graphic novels, and musical collaborations.
