Alanna Powell comes from a long line of creative entrepreneurs which has made her a natural fit for Humboldt Made. Her innovative background instilled within her a passion for small business development and a heart for community collaboration and connection. Years ago, this enthusiasm joined forces with the vision of former HM director, Angeline Schwab, and Alanna’s relationship with Humboldt Made began—first serving as a volunteer, then as a board member, and now as Executive Director. Alanna draws inspiration from Humboldt County and her critical understanding of the link between a place and its people has prepared her to support the unique challenges that come with the resource-rich, rural Humboldt County. Her advocacy of local business, support of the community, and team-centered collaboration with board members is unwavering and those who work with her comment on her passion, dedication, and follow-through. Alanna and her team are dedicated stewards of Humboldt County and its industry clusters; together, with the community, they guide, nurture, and share the Humboldt Made brand within and beyond our borders.
