Senior Communications Manager
Storyteller for global development practitioners, specializing in targeted outreach, marketing, knowledge management, event planning, writing, editing, and support for projects worldwide. Cut my teeth in the field, writing and activating the communications strategy for the USAID West Africa Trade Hub, based in Ghana. Newspaper reporter for eight years in the U.S.—following college internships with Rolling Stone and columnist Molly Ivins—before becoming a health-education volunteer for the Peace Corps in Mali, which led me into development communications. Top-notch editor, writer and interviewer, who has created numerous messaging approaches, overseen website redesigns, organized events, produced a flat ton of materials, and wrangled media.
