Résumé


Summary

I'm a digital communicator with a specialty in journalism and marketing. My daily duties in my most recent roles have helped hone my skills as an account manager, web producer, team leader/manager and social media manager. 

Prior to embarking on a career with Brown University, I spent time at Travelzoo (New York), and the Boston Globe Media Partners. I hold a Bachelor's in Print & Multimedia Journalism from Emerson College and a Master's in Sports Leadership from Northeastern University.

I'm a big fan of this funky planet we live on and look forward to furthering my career in the ever-evolving media industry.
