Lucinda Stroud empowers Washington nonprofits as 501 Commons' Information Systems Analyst, consulting with organizations to build and sustain cloud-based internal informational and collaboration spaces (Intranets), primarily through use of Atlassian's Confluence technology. She also supports the Information & Referral Program and consults on internal operations and improvements.
Prior to transitioning into client-facing consulting, Lucinda acted as the Administrative Coordinator at 501 Commons for two years, building upon an already-strong foundation of nonprofit operations knowledge and internal communications. She has worked in Seattle’s theatre scene both as an artist (director, dramaturg, adapter) and on the administrative side (receptionist, registrar, database administrator, payroll officer, event planner, project coordinator, operations manager…). A graduate from the University of Puget Sound, Lucinda’s focus was on literature, writing, and languages, but her interests were (and remain) wide-ranging. She studied abroad for a semester in New Delhi, where her focus was on microeconomics and the representation of Indian women in literature and film. Since relocating to Seattle, she has volunteered with Equal Rights Washington, ShareWheel's Tent City 5, Washington Won't Discriminate, and the Transit Riders Union.
Fun Fact: Outside of work, Lucinda occasionally invents literary-inspired cocktails for her book club, listens to ALL the podcasts, and naps with her cat.
