Are you in grad school?

I want to help you be awesome at communicating your research and skills. Part of that is being comfortable talking about it.I
Hey, faculty and researchers
I have 7 years of experience in higher education in events management, public relations, and student life.
I’ve researched how best to promote your academic persona and showcase your scholarly achievements.
Your time is important. You must prioritize research and teaching over your online presence.
That’s why my strategy is all about easy-to-follow changes to your current practices, and good communication.
If you want to take the next step, I’m here to help.
Writers and creatives, I want to help you too
I left university life because I found joy in the creative interdisciplinary work and focusing 1:1 with clients.
As a poet, I know how good communication about craft creates new intersections and networks.
I’m here to help readers and editors find you by promoting your work in ways that make you more approachable without compromising your privacy or vision.
Sharing your work in a meaningful way opens worlds.
Organizations, academic departments, and businesses
Whether you need training for your group…
Or user-experience (UX) and content strategy for your website…
I’m here for your strategic communication needs.
