LKA is pleased to announce the opening of its Seattle office, led by Gwen Colwell, Senior Development Strategist.

Most recently, Gwen served as Director of Development Services at KEXP in Seattle, where she more than doubled the ranks of the station’s monthly giving program and led a successful $15 million capital campaign to build and equip a new studio and community facility.

Prior to KEXP, Gwen led annual giving and gift clubs for the Swedish Medical Center Foundation, where she oversaw the comprehensive annual giving program and online strategy as a part of its $100 million capital campaign.

She earned her BA in Political Science and Anthropology from Pacific Lutheran University and before beginning her fundraising career, served as a Rural Health Educator working on HIV/AIDS prevention and education in West Africa.

A Northwest native with a passion for travel, Gwen aspires to spend time on every continent and is also an avid organic gardener, music lover, space enthusiast, and sourdough baker, who lives in Seattle with her husband Aaron and their dog Shadow.
