Leadership, Strategic Communications & Social Impact // I have 15 years of experience as a communications professional and leader, at digital marketing and inbound/content marketing agencies; as a freelance consultant; as a social entrepreneur; and at nonprofit, social impact and mission-driven organizations. See my current and past career experience on my LinkedIn profile.

Public Service // After volunteering and working as a campaign organizer on several issue-based and electoral campaigns for other candidates, I first ran for public office in 2019. I won that race and served At-Large on the Somersworth City Council from 2020–2022. I was recently re-elected to City Council, this time representing Ward 4 as an advocate for school funding, affordable housing, public transportation and smart economic development. 

Volunteer Community Leadership // I led the team at TEDxPortsmouth for 7 years, organized Portsmouth PRIDE twice, volunteered as a Planned Parenthood advocate for years, and served on numerous boards and committees. Currently, I am a board member of SOS Recovery Community Organization, and am always getting into Good Trouble — learn more about some cool projects I’ve led or been a part of.
