I am an entrepreneurial and communications leader passionate about clean energy and engaging stakeholders to bring projects to life. I am a builder of partnerships inside and outside of organizations with a talent for translating complex information for diverse audiences.
My goal is to always create experiences that connect with different audiences, teams, and stakeholders. I build efficient systems, thoughtful processes, and collaborative cultures that allow teams and ideas to thrive.
My background blends operations, leadership, and fostering effective communication strategies for companies and communities.
Founder of Bond & Volt, a firm powering clean energy communications, stakeholder engagement and community outreach. I have a passion for clean energy and want to help mission-driven startups, fast-growing companies and engaged organizations reimagine how we power our world.
Core member of the leadership team at Level All, a stealth edtech startup developing a content-driven app for high school students and their families to succeed in college, career, and life.
As a leader within A+E Networks multiplatform content group, I developed new series and business opportunities for their premium cable networks, SVOD products, brand sponsors, licensing partners, and OTT platforms.
Prior to joining A+E, I founded the video and podcast company, Quoted Studios. Along with producing the award-winning Blank on Blank series with PBS, the studio created work for clients including Microsoft, Spotify, Shell, and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Before taking the startup leap, I spent a decade at the top of national media, as a lead producer for Diane Sawyer, George Stephanopoulos (ABC News/Good Morning America), and Rachel Maddow (MSNBC).
