Becca Isbell is the Communications Director for the Macheke Sustainability Project. While in this position she has increased our social following from 600 to 6,000 in the course of a few months. Recently, she lead the redevelopment of our newly updated and state-of-art website.
Becca brings an understanding of the tools and processes that function behind the scenes to make our communications campaigns and projects successful and cutting-edge. She is most known for her ability to adapt to new roles and juggle multiple responsibilities, as she has worked for both start-ups and lean non-profits where resources were scarce.
Additionally, in 2018, Becca assisted in hosting a Global Sustainability and Personal Transformation trip sponsored by the Macheke Sustainability Project. This trip took volunteers from across the United States to Macheke, Zimbabwe in a cross-cultural exchange and service trip. This extraordinary travel team raised over $15,000, with help from Becca’s organization of the fundraising effort, which allowed them to bring resources for the community, including an ambulatory vehicle and a years supply of menstrual supplies for the local primary school. If you would like to read more about the trip, you can read Becca’s blog post on it here: http://machekeproject.org/zimbabwe-education-trip-2018/
Becca currently lives in Portland, Oregon with her partner, their crew of furry beasts, and approximately four dozen house plants.
