While I have many years of experience conducting research as a journalist, I recently had my first taste of helping to publish higher education research alongside my team at The Aspen Institute. The two-volume research paper on community college transfer to high graduation rate four-year institutions can be found here, on The American Talent Initiative's website.
Communications, Outreach, & Event Planning
I have worked in communications and event planning for multiple brands and companies, most notably Atlantic Media & The Atlantic. My experience includes:
Handling all capacities of event planning, including guest outreach, booking talent, handling venues & catering, and running day-of operations
Writing press releases and advisories
Working with producers, journalists, and editors
Pitching stories to a wide variety of national news outlets
Completing competitor research and follow media trends
Working on media outreach and developing strategic communications plans
Journalism & Media
My professional work in media includes writing, editing, researching, and communications. While pursuing journalism throughout undergrad, I worked as an editorial intern or freelancer at magazines and digital media companies including Greatist, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, VICE, and Runner’s World. While working in journalism, I spent most of my time writing pieces, both for the web and print magazines, editing and copy-editing, conducting research, and interviewing sources.
Additionally, I have experience in social media management focusing on:
Writing, designing, and producing content for social media channels for both major media brands & individual entrepreneurs
Working around the clock to ensure that content is posted on time and is formatted correctly
Planning and executing social media strategy across platforms
Researching and monitoring trends in the digital space on a daily basis (in the past, I've done this for brands like Health.com)
