Second Area of Study: Popular Culture
"I help top non-profit organizations and foundations utilize strategic communications to spark change. I enjoy the fast-paced environment of my firm where no day is the same, and appreciate the opportunity to work with and learn from many experts in various fields - from voting rights to child care to reproductive justice to philanthropy. My background in journalism helps me provide valuable guidance to clients, especially around how to position organizations and C-suite members as thought leaders. I regularly craft powerful and newsworthy messaging that helps clients break through the crowded news cycle. In particular, I enjoy preparing clients for interviews and helping them know what to expect when interacting with a reporter. I've secured coverage on behalf of clients in top-tier outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Today Show, USA TODAY, Fortune, Axios and many more. I enjoy knowing that my work is making an impact and helping people live a better life."
