I've been in marketing and creative communications ever since I was that kid who stapled sheets of paper together to make an imaginary magazine called "U." It was a one-copy, one-issue run that circulated in my bedroom, but I had fun drawing the cover and conjuring up stories. As an adult, I wanted to combine my love for design and communications, with helping to make a difference. Today, I've found a niche helping nonprofits spread their stories to achieve visionary goals.


Successful projects include launching Grameen Foundation’s annual fund. In three years, it was raising $2 million per year. I've also had the honor of working as a policy fellow for U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy on the Elementary Secondary Education Act. Awards include the Jacob Javits Fellowship and American Alliance of Museums Fellowship. I've presented at the Maryland Arts Summit on diversity, equity and inclusion, and was selected by the American Alliance of Museums to cover their 2019 conference as a Social Media Journalist.


My B.A. is from Wellesley College and my Masters in Public Administration is from Columbia University.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope we get to meet soon!
