The daughter of a teacher and ethics professor-turned-clergyman, I grew up with a strong sense of interconnectedness with my community. Interconnectedness (Desmond Tutu calls it ubuntu
) continues to motivate me to support communities where all have opportunities to thrive. I call it community wellness: taking care of our selves and taking care of each other.
To that end, I work with nonprofits that provide health, education, job, and housing services and with campaigns that promote progressive heath, education, job, and housing policies. I produce written collateral, such as grant applications, social media and website content, and print marketing text. I also create and implement communications and development strategies, including grassroots funding and political advocacy campaigns, donor cultivation, and corporate partnerships. For organizations requiring a more comprehensive suite of services, I partner with CIMA Consulting
I hold a master's degree in international relations from King's College London. I am particularly interested in how public policy can better serve the wellbeing of women and children. I have worked with organizations in Europe, Africa, and North America.
