Ewan is HFJ’s lead external, internal, and crisis communications strategist. They tend to our organizational voice, storytelling, and narrative strategies. They are a natural cross-pollinator, and keep their ear to the ground to boost the stories and voices of Headwaters’ community and movement partners. They do their best work in collaboration, so it’s no surprise that they’re often working across departments to dream up projects and digital campaigns to help the work of HFJ and its partners shine. 

Ewan comes from a background in queer and trans community building, reproductive justice education and advocacy, and local community organizing. Their work on grassroots campaigns taught them how the stories we tell shape the futures we can imagine. Originally from Massachusetts, Ewan has lived in Minnesota since 2011. They spend their time gardening, cooking, reading, and hosting friends. They’re also a late-blooming athlete who loves Olympic weightlifting and cross-country skiing.
