a bit about me:

  • Communications manager working in regional politics, focused on community-serving organizations and progressive coalitions in northeast Ohio 

  • Probably behind whatever op-ed recently raised your eyebrows

  • Provider of development, communications, operational, and consultative services, with specializations in nonprofits and small businesses

  • Board leader with experience in founding, growing, funding, and securing organizations

  • Community advocate, deeply invested in structural and social equity for my communities and neighborhood

  • Professional writer by day, unprofessional writer by night

I love to amplify powerful messengers who are backed by grassroots coalitions. If that's not your biography right now, it can be.
