CV available upon request.
A native Kansan with Oakie roots, I find myself back on the plains after seven years living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. Prior to heading west, I lived in Wisconsin to get my bachelor’s degree in sociology with an emphasis in environmental science. A masters program in philosophy took me to the pacific coast and, when I graduated, I stayed and launched a career in marketing for green and socially conscious companies.
Always interested in building a healthier, more sustainable world, I have over 10 years experience contributing to the efforts of social and environmental organizations. As a result, I have developed a diverse skill-set including but not limited to: writing, project management, marketing, social media, public relations, community engagement, research, and education. I have extensive experience in the communications field where I’ve dealt directly with the public and media. I’m a powerful writer with experience editing the content of scholarly articles for a women’s academic journal. An adept public speaker, I have the ability to instill passion in others toward some idea or cause. A quick learner and creative thinker, I regularly work outside the box, being inventive and resourceful when it comes to promoting something I believe in.
Some of my successes include: producing the first bike share health impact assessment in the country, attaining over four million media impressions for a national ad campaign in its third year, increasing a client’s social media fan base on Facebook by 100% in less than a year through the development and execution of a tailored social media strategy, and obtaining grant funding to conduct ethnographic research in Thailand. My current pursuits are in the areas of health impact assessment and advocacy.
I’m dedicated to the ongoing work of co-creating a healthy, sustainable, and equitable society, and look forward to working with companies and organizations to see that vision come alive.
