As a writer, educator and communications strategist, I enjoy helping people and organizations communicate effectively, persuasively and with purpose. For 20 years, I have worked with Bay Area universities and nonprofits in the areas of communications, writing and editing, and content strategy.
Teaching and mentoring have been cherished parts of my career. I have mentored students and professional communicators at all levels, including writers, editors, designers, photographers, videographers and social media managers. In addition, I have advised senior leaders on strategic business and fundraising communications.
A first-generation college graduate, I understand the impact of education—and have spent much of my career working to advance public higher education. With a coaching style, I aim to help students feel less intimidated by the writing process and more confident in their ability to communicate, and to guide them toward a growth mindset.
