ELEANOR FULTON manages AppWorks’ marketing and sales strategies, including the FileMaker training classes and community activities, while also providing much needed support in client communications.

She graduated in 2016 from the University of Washington with dual majors in Marketing and Psychology. In her free time, you can find her training for races, or curled up at home with a good book. She loves fancy lattes and will not give up the search for a respectable gluten-free donut.
