As a writer, editor, and marketing communications strategist, my goal is to make complex concepts easy to understand while preserving critical information.
What I do
- Tailor technical content to specific audiences at all levels
- Manage marketing campaigns in social media, email, web, and print
- Develop and maintain processes for project management
- Test different communications to find out which is best
I am a senior communications specialist at American Student Assistance and a member of the Direct Marketing Association Ethics Policy Committee.
I’m a member of Somerville YIMBY, a group that promotes the creation of more housing as a solution to our regional housing shortage. I also volunteer to help students at West Roxbury Academy and the Urban Science Academy write college essays, and work on writing and other homework with students at 826Boston.
