I work as an independent communications consultant. Right now, I primarily work for Brotherton Strategies. Recently, I've also worked with its partner Groundwork Strategies. I contribute to the writing, research, and development of communications plans and strategies for nonprofits and foundations.

I help develop branding and messaging platforms; and conduct brand, content, and competitive reviews. I write case studies, stories of impact, success stories, and grantee profiles. I also create and update websites, do media research, manage social media content, and do a fair bit of project management.

One of my favorite projects is Speaking of Change: How Foundations Can Use Communications to Up Their Game, a partnership between Brotherton Strategies and the Packard Foundation that features six fascinating stories of ways communications can create social change. I co-researched and wrote the stories, and managed the website design and development. You can read more about the project here, and go right to the website here
