About me

I’m an ideas person. Creative. Strategic. Big picture. 

I’m also a get-it-done person with a strong track record of delivering results and exceeding expectations in my own right and leading others to do so. Supremely organized. Accountable. 


I have 25 years of experience in strategic communications and engagement for mission-driven organizations. My work includes writing, editing, content marketing, fundraising, stewardship and events, alumni and parent relations, and annual giving.

Proud mom of two awesome young men. I learned team work, diplomacy, and how to treat others while growing up in a family of 10 children. Devoted Celtics fan. Love reading, running, hiking, and time outdoors.


I’ve had the good fortune to work with many smart and talented people. The work in this portfolio is a reflection of that collaboration. 


Thanks for taking a look.
