I bring with me an eclectic background that intersects healthcare, public policy and advocacy. My natural ability to relate to people across demographics and build rapport quickly is one reason why I excel at building relationships with stakeholders. There are two common denominators in everything that I have done- and intend to pursue. #1 I engage in work that I care about.  #2 Writing and communication are the driving force of my success.
