I am an experienced, enthusiastic public interest communications professional thrilled to be promoting the research and successes of the School of Human Ecology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Originally from the Chicago suburbs, I spent the last six years working for a sustainability-focused public policy think tank in Seattle. Prior to that, I supported the fundraising team of a major Midwest-regional environmental organization and served a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA in legal aid work after graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Scripps College in Claremont, CA. I am passionate about powerful storytelling and meaningful public engagement. Outside of work, I am an avid reader and sporadic writer, accomplished bike tourist, community volunteer, crossword buff, and curious foodie.
