Senior Brand Strategist
After a decade of working with some of the most innovative technology companies in the country, Stephanie Swain brings the best of those experiences to Mission Minded as a Senior Brand Strategist. Stephanie worked on campaigns for Google, Yahoo, and YouTube as part of one of Silicon Valley’s most highly respected communications agencies. She also worked independently on campaigns for a wide variety of exciting start-ups ranging from retail technology to online media solutions.
Stephanie specializes in storytelling and finding that perfect mix of industry professionalism and audience-friendly language. She felt the pull to the nonprofit world after a period of long-term travel, during which she provided coaching for grassroots cultural exchange organizations in India and literacy programs in Myanmar and Laos. She is passionate about giving nonprofits the same level of resources and marketing enjoyed by large corporations.
Originally from the Midwest, Stephanie lived in San Francisco for fourteen years before relocating to Portland, Oregon, with her husband, two young kids, and scruffy dog. She’s a word-loving, adventure-seeking, list-making, messaging pro who is happiest 80 feet under water exploring reefs.
