When donor dollars are sacred, mission delivery becomes critical. In my current high-profile role at the USO, I often work remotely and independently to deliver feature stories and critical visual components for high-value brand campaigns on location under a variety of conditions. I shine under pressure and on tight deadlines, thinking and communicating strategically with a variety of people. Coveted for my ingenuity both on and off the job, I was hired in the fall of 2016 as a Teaching Assistant in UX Engineering at Harvard Extension School.
My well-rounded academic background includes traditional journalism as well as front- and back-end web and video production technologies. My work experience includes newspaper editing, magazine feature writing, film production, operations, sales and management, installation media management and public relations, as well as IT project management and general business startup operations.
As an entrepreneur, I've successfully built both online and service-oriented businesses and I excel at maximizing growth while minimizing early investment by choosing optimal business models and practicing core business best practices.
