Senior Communications Manager
Yiling Wong oversees storytelling strategy, media outreach, and event marketing across the organization. She has previously served at King County, the University of Washington, Habitat for Humanity, and Smart Growth America. The common thread throughout has been a need to make positive change across groups and to empower people to flourish. As a Minnesotan child of Chinese immigrants, Yiling enjoys fried potatoes, pot stickers, and behavioral economics for kindness. After renting in four Seattle neighborhoods since moving to the state in 2008, she now lives near Green Lake with her partner, their experimental garden, and three chickens. In her free time, she can be found eating and adventuring on all forms of water. Yiling holds a master’s degree in Public Policy from George Washington University, a B.A. from the University of Minnesota, and a Washington Food Worker card.
