I am a committed leader and communications strategist who helps move missions forward. For more than a decade, I have helped executives and organizations communicate for results and elevate their brands.

 

I love to tell an organization’s story from the top, whether preparing senior executives to deliver keynote addresses, crafting corporate messages or acting as an organizational spokesperson. My gift is quickly grasping the essence of big issues and translating them into simple but compelling messages that hit home with audiences—from members of a board to members of the media.  

Having held speechwriting, communications and public affairs positions across the nonprofit, public and private sectors, no industry is too challenging, no topic too nuanced, for me to create content that enlightens, inspires or sparks change.

A Pittsburgh, Pa. native now based in the Washington, D.C. metro, I earned a Master of Arts degree in Communication from the New York University (NYU) Steinhardt School of Media, Culture and Communication and a Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Communication from the Ohio University College of Communication.

 

I also have a longstanding commitment to philanthropy, community involvement and public service. Currently, I serve on the leadership team of the United Way of the National Capital Area’s Young Philanthropists Society and am an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I was previously competitively selected as a Partnership for Public Service Excellence in Government Fellow and a Coro Center for Civic Leadership Community Problem-Solving Fellow.

You can read my award-winning speeches here and here, or watch me host an interview here. Contact me for speechwriting and message development services or public speaking opportunities.
