I am a dedicated communications specialist seeking a nonprofit or communications position with a progressive mission. I have previously worked for a massive foundation, a small but nimble nonprofit, and most recently the nation's premier political newsroom. I am an adaptable, ambitious project manager who believes that every strong leader is first a strong servant.
