Darcie Esch joined the Law School development staff in August 2021 after spending 6+ years in Advancement Services. She’s proud to be part of the Lewis & Clark community because she believes education can be the great equalizer. Being passionate about literacy led her be a SMART Reading volunteer for many years and serve on its Multnomah County Advisory Committee. She has 20 years experience in the nonprofit world as a grant writer and database specialist. She was drawn to nonprofits after working in the financial services industry, where it quickly became apparent her values did not align with theirs.
