My industry experience comes from working in a range of organizational types -- non-profit humanitarian aid, arts administration, news media, agencies, and corporations -- that have been formative to my experience in organizational change, strategy, corporate social responsibility, social media, and technology.
During my graduate work, I researched management strategy at two start-ups -- one in stealth mode and the other seeking to be acquired. I have also advised a major metropolitan news organization on social media policy strategy.
I was the recipient of an IRTS fellowship to work as an online journalist for W-NBC 4 in New York City. Previous employers include UPS Corporate Public Affairs on Capitol Hill, Edelman (public relations agency) on K Street, the National Geographic Society, WTTG Fox 5 DC, and the American Red Cross (headquarters).
I have skills in research, legislative/public affairs, policy analysis, digital public relations, media production, investigative journalism, photography, digital asset management, and rights licensing.
