Social Media Maven & Photographer


With a nonprofit career spanning 10+ years, including six years of hands-on marketing and communications experience, my mission is to raise awareness of key causes by documenting and sharing the journeys of the individuals behind the programs.

I am an impactful communications writer and STORYTELLER with a proven record of cultivating compelling platforms and printed materials. I take a journalistic approach to online marketing ­— traveling into the field to interview, photograph, and advocate for underrepresented communities.

"The written word is
my playground."

My passion is sharing the poignant narratives of growth of the individuals whose lives are transformed by an organization or cause. Through content-rich copy and emotion-laden imagery, it is my mission to tell their stories.

These skills were recently showcased while leading my second successful CMNW Willamette Week Give!Guide campaign, which featured an original video I created on the journey of an individual whose life was changed by CMNW music education programs.

I produced, conducted interviews for, scripted, narrated, and edited the award-winning human-interest piece, which won Second–Place nationwide in the National Federation of Press Women's 2018 Communication Contest for a Social Media Campaign in the category of nonprofit/government/education. a which played a pivotal role in attracting new donors to give at year-end and increasing CMNW’s Give!Guide fundraising totals by 100% from 2015 to 2017.
