Shunpike welcomes our new Client Manager and Admin, Marketing & Development Coordinator

Posted on: Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

We are thrilled to welcome Jessica Wesley and Corey Blaustein as the newest members of the Shunpike team. Taking up the role of Client Manager, Jessica will work alongside Katy Hannigan to provide services and support for our basic and comprehensive fiscal sponsorship clients. Corey will be working closely with the entire Shunpike team as the Administrative, Marketing and Development Coordinator

Jessica Wesley first discovered Shunpike while researching her Masters thesis in Performing Arts Administration at NYU. A self-proclaimed data geek, Jessica is life-long artist with a passion for using technology and innovative business practices to melt office busy work and make way for creative endeavors. Following her BA in Theatre from Tulane University, she spent five years working for science non-profits in DC and then NYC, before starting graduate school at NYU.

With internships and work experience at arts non-profits in NYC, London, and now Seattle, she combines database, IT, and project management skills from the science world with creative passion that carries outside the workplace. Jessica enjoys a cappella singing and arranging, video games, and writing poetry, short scenes and stories, and the occasional post on her blog (ArtsTechChick.) She spends most weekends exploring the outdoors with her husband and her dog or curling up with her cat and a good book.

Corey Blaustein received his Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Arts Leadership from Seattle University. His love and passion for music and arts has driven him to pursue a life devoted to the promotion of creativity and artistic expression. He has worked within marketing and communications for a variety of organizations from music production houses, to art galleries, to cultural and economic departments within local governments. His experiences and interests has steered his efforts toward helping small creative organizations and art groups develop meaningful and sustainable communications and marketing strategies.
