Hi there! Thanks for stopping by.
My varied professional history includes public health research, feminist oral history projects, climate change, and women’s empowerment. Though these seem to be quite different, they are all connected by a commitment to justice, equality, and empowerment. Meaning and progress are the most important things for me when I’m thinking about what I’d like to do and the direction I’d like my life to take.
I have an MA in Ethics, Peace and Global Affairs from the School of International Service at American University. This program is very human-rights heavy and my personal research throughout the program regularly focused on the intersection of social issues and religion.
I am currently a communications specialist at the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy and am available for freelance content creation, writing, website, and social media strategy work. Please contact me for more information, rates, references, and samples.
In my free time, I enjoy training for half marathons, marathons, and triathlons. I’ve previously been a group exercise instructor and love pushing people and helping them achieve goals. My commitment to fitness is tied to my interest in public health and empowerment. I’ve volunteered with Girls on the Run to teach young girls about the benefits of running for personal worth, self-esteem, and empowerment. My commitment to empowering girls and women shows through my professional, academic and volunteer experience.
Below I’ve listed some of the specific issues, causes, and topics that interest me:
peace, conflict resolution, progressive faith-based work, women’s rights, gender, climate, food systems and safety, education, development, international relations, immigration, violence prevention, civil rights, human rights, children’s rights, public health, reproductive rights, health education, race, violence, economic inequality, history/oral history
So, what am I looking for in a career?
meaning, autonomy, potential for growth, opportunities for professional development, committed coworkers, flexibility, accountability, outside-the-box thinking, positive leadership, opportunities to write
