Above all else, a successful communications professional embodies adaptability.
Communications is not only a set of skills but a curiosity, an interest in learning, in sharing, in connecting people with information, with one another. It requires the ability to think critically, understand, explain, show.
From a liberal arts education to a background in journalism to communications, project management and event planning roles with very diverse organizations (with some foreign languages and theatre, themselves forms of communication, mixed in along the way), I have brought these skills, traits and adapted many times over.
My work has focused on everything from education, from birth to higher academia, to international diplomacy; urban planning to cyber security; immigration journalism to literary translation; tech entrepreneurship to juvenile justice; the well-being of families to the politics of love; the use of theatre to embolden minority girls to the safety of homeless LGBTQ youth; gay rights, gender roles, poverty, race, fixing disparities and righting wrongs.
My skills range from words (from limited characters to long-form narratives) to design to photography to web coding. They come across in publications (from a one-page brochure to a 50-page report), in presentations, on computers and phones, in videos, in speeches, at events, and in conversations.
I also raise money — fundraising events, appeals, community building.
