I've been working with nonprofits for most of my professional life (20+ years), with a focus on healthcare and higher education. I'm also a published writer and journalist with bylines on health, wellness, immigration, behavioral health, addiction treatment, psychology, youth education, arts in education, social justice and other topics.
As part of my media relations work, I've pitched and placed stories in publications such as The Boston Globe, WGBH, NPR Canada, The Boston Business Journal, NECN, The Lowell Sun, The Merrimack Valley Magazine, North Shore Magazine and a host of trade publications.
As a journalist and essayist, I've published my own work in Cognoscenti/WBUR, The Boston Globe Magazine, The Irish Independent, Salon, Huffington Post and other outlets.
Storytelling for Good
Long before I reached the legal age to work for money, I was telling stories. Now, as a grown up, I'm proud to bring this skill to my work with nonprofit organizations.
Our stories should teach, explain and enlighten. Our stories should build bridges of understanding or empathy between us and our audiences or constituents--our funders, our patients, our students and our community partners.
I'm the writer and editor. For digital services (web, photography, video, desktop design), I work with some creative, fun and trusted professionals. We keep it simple but elegant.
Together, let's help your organization to tell your best stories for great outcomes and measurable results.
