I lead the UK branch of an international PR and marketing firm, headquartered in Washington, DC. I am responsible for managing international projects and relationships on both sides of the pond. I also serve as a project manager for arts, education, and public health clients. I specialise in writing and editing for streamlined communications and messaging, collaborating with project teams in the planning, drafting, and editing of all written communications. My organisational and managerial skills are amplified by my experience working in urban education, non-profits, and moving image media.
Prior to my tenure in PR, I joined Teach For America, working as a secondary English Instructor in the inner-city of St. Louis, Missouri. I was then recruited to help found the 10th branch of the Noble Network of Charter Schools, opening that campus in Chicago’s Englewood community in the fall of 2010. During my tenure there, I taught reading strategies, civics, and drama. I also served as Chair of the Fine Arts Department, as well as a four-year mentor to a group of at-risk males, stewarding them to high school graduation and matriculation at universities across the United States.
I earned my master’s degree in Film and Media Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. My areas of study were film exhibition and French cinema, with a particular focus on the French New Wave. During my graduate studies, I taught undergraduate courses on film history and other electronic media.
My firm has significant experience in tourism and hospitality marketing. I am looking to network with potential clients and partners in the tourism industry.
