I am a native of the Pacific Northwest who has recently returned to Seattle. I’m skilled at translating scientific and academic content into compelling stories that connect with a general audience through a variety of channels. In my career I have crafted effective communications for CyberWatch West at Whatcom Community College; SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics; Expedia; the Seattle Art Museum; and the Mountaineers.
An experienced project manager, I have CAPM certification and keep complex projects on schedule and within budget. I know how to be firm about meeting deadlines and enforcing in-house style rules, and I can be diplomatic when negotiating priorities with other departments or internal stakeholders. I collaborate effectively with creative team members such as graphic designers, writers, photographers, illustrators, and indexers.
