About Me

I grew up in the Detroit metro area, the oldest of three girls. After high school I left Michigan to attend college at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I loved Wake – it wasn’t the most diverse campus, smoking was allowed in the local mall, and I graduated with no idea of what I wanted to “do” with my life – but I got a great education and I met a number of lifelong friends. In addition to those friends, I left Wake with a BA in English and an MA in education.

I then moved to DC to work in education policy. But in the summer of 2007 I reached a crossroads and did a lot of soul searching about my future career goals. I decided that what I loved most about all of my past jobs were the communications aspects like writing, messaging, talking with the media, and building networks of people to get stuff done. So I decided to leave the policy behind and formally pursue communications.

I’m now balancing life as a communications specialist at a nonprofit education association with life as a part-time student in a corporate communications/public relations program at Georgetown University.
