I love stories.
Before I knew how to ride a bike or write my own name, I knew how to tell a story. I began my career helping museums tell stories to the public about science, history, and the arts through interactive multimedia. I attended the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, ME to hone those storytelling skills. I jumped into public media, where I was privileged to tell stories for WBUR, NOVA, and BackStory with the American History Guys.
In 2013, I joined the communications team at UMass Boston. There, I applied my skills as a writer and multimedia producer in telling the story of Boston’s only public research university. I also re-launched, hosted, and produced Commonwealth Journal, a half-hour public affairs program on WUMB.
Today, I’m the Digital Communications Manager at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Scientists. There, I get to meet amazing PhD students and alumni, and tell the world about their innovative research through writing, social media, video, and the GSAS podcast, Veritalk.
When I’m not working, I’m most likely to be found stirring something in the kitchen, or explaining a board game to friends.
