Hi there!

If you’re visiting this page, you’re probably interested in my professional side. In a nutshell: I love communications. I’ve lived all over the United States, look to work with organizations that have a lot of heart, and love combining smart messaging with thoughtful design.


I currently lead the communications and marketing team at U.S. Digital Response. We’re a small, and rapidly growing, nonprofit that helps governments and organizations respond to their community’s urgent needs. Check out our 2022 In Review and our 2021 In Review report here.

I recently lead all communications efforts at the University of Nebraska at Omaha College of Information Science and Technology. I also directed CodeCrush – an iSTEM immersion experience designed to help make the tech workforce more diverse and inclusive.

I earned my master’s degree in Public Relations from Boston University, and have been working in communications for over a decade. I’ve helped my clients gain positive placements in The Economist, The New York Times, Washington Post, The L.A. Times, and countless other news outlets.
