Bio

I focus on the social sector, and have worked with leading foundations, major NGOs, federal government and international cabinet ministries. Expertise includes international development, global healthcare, social change, donor relations, development, climate change, sustainability, ethics and accountability, stakeholder insight, philanthropy strategy, mission/vision/values, “good” branding and cause marketing. Core areas of focus include strategy, research design, field research, benefactor behavior, solution design, communications messaging, audience engagement, experience platforms, and program and policy advising.

Prior to focusing on social impact, I was a strategy director or senior strategist at Weiden+Kennedy, McCann, Mullen, and design shop JDK. I also took time to work in organizational development with global firms Blessing/White and Right Manus. 

I earned my masters at Yale, my BA at Fairfield, and spent three years at Tufts/New England Conservatory.
