The short of it:
Writer. Health, education, and art advocate. Theater and film producer. Visual artist. Product geek. Proud alumnae of the University of Pennsylvania (BA) and the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia (MBA). Inspired by ancient wisdom & modern tech. Proliferator of goodness. Opener of doors. Friend to animals. Fan of creative work in all its wondrous forms. I use my business skills to create passion projects that build a better world. A New Yorker at heart, I now split my time between New York and D.C.
The long of it:
My 19-year career has stretched across Capitol Hill, Broadway theatre, education, nonprofit fundraising, health and wellness, and Fortune 500 companies in retail, media, and financial services. I’ve been a product developer and product manager, theater manager, strategic consultant, marketer, voice over artist, and fundraiser. I use my business savvy to support and sustain passion projects that build a better world. In every experience, I’ve used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, programs, and events.
While building a business career, I also built a strong portfolio as a freelance writer, interviewer, presenter, and public speaker. My writing has appeared in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, PBS.org, Boston.com, Royal Media Partners publications, and The Motley Fool on a wide range of topics including business, technology, science, health, education, culture, and lifestyle. I have also been an invited speaker at SXSW, Teach for America, Avon headquarters, Games for Change, NYU, Columbia University, Hunter College, and the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. Additionally, my first YA novel was recently acquired by a publisher and will be published this Fall.
A recovering multi-tasker, I’m equally at home in front of my Mac, on my yoga mat, walking my rescue dog, Phineas, traveling with a purpose, or practicing the high-art of people watching.
My current projects:
My YA novel, Where the Light Enters, will be published in the Fall of 2017 by Thumbkin Books, an imprint of Possibilities Publishing Co.
Non-fiction book about imagination and business co-authored with Dr. R. Edward Freeman. Title TBD.
A Can of Coke, a virtual platform to provide college- and career-readiness services to high school students.
I look forward to the conversation.
