I am a social impact communications strategist, mentor, trainer and public speaker based in Washington, DC. For more than two decades I have advised leaders in the U.S. and globally about the best communications strategies and tactics to achieve their objectives, increase the impacts of their programs, and produce lasting positive change.
I have led communication initiatives in more than a dozen countries for conservation, disaster response, global health and economic development organizations. My clients have included the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, American Red Cross Disaster Services, Real Voices Media, Niger Delta Partnership Initiative Foundation, Families USA, Climate Science Legal Defense Fund, Water Sharing Information and Analysis Center, Center for Clean Air Policies, SourceAmerica© and more.
Previously, I directed communications at The Wilderness Society, led policy advocacy communications on global climate change for the World Wide Fund for Nature, managed communications for American Red Cross Disaster Services and conducted outreach along the front-lines of war zones for the International Committee of the Red Cross.
I started out as a network TV and radio journalist reporting on stories in the U.S., Europe, Africa and the Middle East. I worked for CBS Evening News, CNN New York and London, United Press International Radio, Radio France Internationale, and Deutsche-Welle Radio.
