About Me: 

I used to think writing was easy, so I went to college to become a biomedical engineer. After my first science course, I knew I was on the wrong track. Instead, I found my home (and lost my science scholarship) in the Journalism school at UNC Chapel Hill. There I learned from some of the nation’s best professors, particularly Mr. Chuck Stone, that while writing might be easy, writing well is a craft I will learn forever. I also learned that as a journalist my role is not only to report or provide commentary, but to place pieces of the human experience within a larger context so that anyone can relate and understand. My passion is to help make this world a better place beginning with the way we choose and use our words and starting with the people we engage everyday. I'm also the Communications Director for a kickass organization dedicated to improving our democracy through Millennial-led solutions called Mobilize.org and will be starting my graduate studies in communications at American University this fall.

My Passions: 
Writing. Connecting. Exploring. Empowering. Inspiring.
My Challenges: 
Never feeling like I'm doing enough.
My Vision for the Future: 
Our world be a place where everyone knows and realizes the power in their voice and in sharing their experiences.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Writing, Editing, Social Media, Web 2.0, Branding.
