Sheilagh serves as the leadership giving officer where she is responsible for stewarding donors at the Producers Club level and above. She is involved in all aspects of major gift fundraising and responsible for identifying new opportunities for the station. As well as working with the on-air fundraising team, she supports the station’s membership and fundraising activities by database analysis, face-to-face meetings, email, direct mail, and online giving.

Sheilagh joined KPBS in February 2015 as the membership operations and distribution supervisor where she managed KPBS’ Door2Door Canvassing Campaign, streamlined donor acknowledgements and sustainer communication, and was integral in the launch of KPBS Passport, the station’s member-only online video library.

Prior to working at KPBS, Sheilagh worked at MIT in Cambridge for the Sloan Management Review as a marketing assistant. Originally hailing from the Boston area, Sheilagh has her BA in geography and attended University College Cork in Ireland for her MBA in international public policy and diplomacy.

She has a passion for KPBS as a long-time public radio listener and enjoys connecting with our community members. When not meeting with KPBS members, Sheilagh volunteers for Big Brothers Big Sisters. She also enjoys sailing and hiking.
