Work experience

Project HOPE

April 2017Present

Social Media Coordinator

I support the Development and Communications department and am responsible for a wide variety of functions that support and build strategic marketing and public relations communications. I assist with the development of compelling social media and web content to tell Project HOPE’s rich story.

Since joining Project HOPE, organic reach and engagements across social channels are up over 30 percent. Additionally, HOPE was able to successfully leverage influencers such as Lin-Manuel Miranda and Gina Rodrigquez to share information about HOPE's emergency response efforts to Hurricane Maria and also raised thousands of dollars organically through Facebook's Fundraising platform.

SB Nation


Site Manager

I manage Bullets Forever, SB Nation’s site focused on the Washington Wizards and Washington Mystics, as well as a staff of over a dozen contributors who provide content, commentary, reporting, and analysis for the site. Bullets Forever consistently delivers over half a million visits per month, has over 100,000 likes on Facebook and over 17,000 followers on Twitter. The site’s content has been featured on ESPN, Yahoo, and The Washington Post, among other outlets.

As a Content Producer, I was responsible for managing and optimizing audio content for RealNetworks’ mobile clients, including Verizon Wireless Media Store, T-Mobile CallerTunes and Slacker Radio. 

I helped RealNetworks save money and increase productivity by developing scripts and new processes to improve the speed and reliability of content processing. These developments have allowed Real to reach objectives and complete internal and external projects ahead of schedule.

I also assisted with quality assurance testing for new products RealNetworks has produced for clients including Verizon, T-Mobile, Metro PCS, and Vivo.
