My career has allowed me to experience a variety of work environments including business, nonprofit, government (USDA, GSA, State Department and US Navy), and trade association stuctures.

The one consistent theme throughout all of my experiences is that they have capitalized on my strengths:

  • entrepreneurial spirit
  • extensive communication expertise
  • persuasive talents
  • ability to organize complex projects and delegate tasks, and
  • a comprehensive understanding of design and usability concepts when it comes to creating print, email and web collateral.

Current career focus: Online Marketing

My recent career focus has been in the online marketing arena. I currently provide online marketing strategic support to OMP's clients, and online marketing strategy and execution support to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

In the past I provided search engine optimization and marketing consulting assistance and training to affiliates of Points of Light & Hands On Network, and to external clients. To support the on-going training needs of my students, I maintain a blog focused on how to recruit volunteers online.
