I am a digital communications and marketing professional actively working in new technologies and social media channels with an emphasis on creative and art direction, storytelling and web and content strategy.
At my last position at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, I handled everything from digital strategy to design direction to leading social media and web projects. I managed teams, trained three new web producers, as well as supervised designers and web production associates.
I graduated from the University of Washington Master in Communications in Digital Media program in 2011 with coursework in Digital Media and the Law, Leadership in the Digital Age, Storytelling, Social Production, Evolution and Trends in Digital Media and Emerging Markets in Digital Media.
I have regularly present on various topics in the Seattle area. I co-organized the Public Relations Society of America Puget Sound chapter nonprofit seminar “Connecting for a Cause” on September 24, 2014. I was also a moderator for the panel “Diversity and Community: Connecting with Your Audience.” In July 2014 I was a panelist for the SMAHRT Conference on social media and adolescent health on using social media to promote and disseminate research findings. I also co-ran a workshop in June 2014 “Tips and Tools to Build Support for Your Mission” for the Center for Nonprofit Success.
I blogged for The Seattle Times for the 2012 and 2010 Olympic games and served as an editor the UW MCDM Flip the Media blog from 2009-2011.
