I am an expert at clarifying complex information for a target audience. As a multi-media journalist, I have been successful at reporting on breaking and community news. As a print publications specialist, I have effectively distilled complicated scientific information for a lay audience through both the written word and the use of visuals. I have been fortunate to work as a policy advocate, most recently serving as an executive manager in the Maryland state legislature. My area of specialty in all of these roles is developing respectful narratives. I am a strategic planner, a practical problem-solver and a creative self-starter. As a leader, I model hard work and good humor to motivate staff in achieving measured goals.
