I am a project director/principal investigator with a large toolbox of functional skills at my disposal and a robust network of federal and state governmental contacts. I have notable expertise in policy, communications, science writing, trainings, public speaking, grant writing, media, social media, and research. I am excellent at community engagement, funder relations, developing projects, obtaining funding, then following through with project execution. I spent much of my career as a public health consultant; working on a wide variety of projects keeps me engaged and challenged.
