experience.

My professional experience is pretty varied. I started working as an educator, and spent two years working as a professional artist. I then got into the administrative side of non-profit work and managed community education programs. After graduate school, I built up a number of experiences working in social enterprise and social innovation. Now I work in innovation at the UN, where I've been able to engage with displaced populations.

skills.

I've built up a unique skill set over my 10+ years of professional experience. Working as an educator has given me training and workshop facilitation skills. As an impact storyteller I've gained skills in design, content creation, and strategic communications. But, I also have a right-brained side. I have significant program management and measurement skills, and I enjoy mentoring micro-entrepreneurs and local innovators in creating sustainable business models.
