Make-A-Wish® Alaska and Washington Announces New Hire and Promotion


January 30, 2016


Spokane, WA

Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington, the local nonprofit organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, is pleased to announce the following staffing changes:

Rachael Roig, wish & administrative coordinator

In this role, Roig will coordinate approximately 50 wishes annually throughout eastern Washington, respond to requests for general chapter information, and will support annual community fundraising and awareness programs.

Roig earned her master’s degree in communications from Eastern Washington University. She brings experience in community relations and office management to Make-A-Wish, and most recently worked at Liberty Mutual Insurance. Roig currently resides in Spokane, Washington.

Natalie Wright, regional manager

Formerly administrative coordinator, Wright has been promoted to regional manager at the local Make-A-Wish office. In this role, Wright manages all operations of the Alaska office, including community engagement, volunteer recruitment and donor relations. She also served as a board member prior to becoming a full-time staff member. 

About Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington

Thirty years and 6,000 wishes later, Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington is local and we are here to stay with your support! From granting six wishes in our first year, to now 368 this year, we have come a long way, but our work is not over yet. We’re lighting a spark within our organization and our community to grant a wish for every eligible child because we know wishes matter. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can influence the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Every year, one in four seriously-ill children in Alaska and Washington does not receive a wish because they are not being referred to our program. That’s something we can and will change. For more information about Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington and how you can share the power of a wish® please call 800.304.9474, visit or connect with us at or on Twitter @MakeAWishAKWA.
