I believe in the power of communications.

It seems like every day, there’s a new tool created to help people, brands, and organizations communicate better, and faster than ever before. But technology should be just that – the tool, not the strategy. Over the course of my eight-year career in communications, through experiences in the private sector and global nonprofit environment, I’ve seen the power of messaging. I know that if you reach the right person, at the right time, with the right message, you can accomplish your goal.  

At the University of Missouri School of Journalism, I studied the fundamentals of storytelling. Whether my goal has been generating leads for a marketing and branding consultancy, raising awareness for a women's empowerment nonprofit, or raising funds to distribute life-saving bed nets to protect refugees from malaria, those fundamentals are what drive impact.

I work in the nonprofit sector because I want to tell stories and use the power of communication to spur action and better the world.

When I'm not working, I'm traveling (or researching my next trip), cooking (kitchen gadgets are my weakness), or catching up on Netflix (so much television, too little time).
