I have eight years of award-winning journalism experience and have published thousands of articles in print and online. I reported for the Greenwich Time and the Stamford Advocate daily newspapers in Connecticut and for The National Law Journal out of New York and Toronto. I have covered topics such as international law, immigration, health, education, politics and social services.
I have done communications and development work in an academic and non-profit setting, including writing for the web and newsletters, creating brochures and other marketing materials, researching potential donors and partnership opportunities, and increasing outreach through social media.
I have an M.S. in International Affairs with a concentration in Governance and Rights and a B.A. in Communications/Journalism. I have lived in the former Yugoslavia, completed a journalism fellowship in Greece, worked as Canada bureau chief in Toronto, and served on international delegations in Australia, China and South Africa.
I have volunteered for organizations such as Human Rights Watch and the International Rescue Committee in New York, served on the Humanitarian Affairs Committee of Young Professionals for International Cooperation, and done volunteer work in Guatemala. Other volunteer work includes teaching English at the International Center in New York and giving workshops at the New York City High School Journalism Conference.
