I spent a decade in the advertising industry before joining the nonprofit sector in 2009. Social media had started gaining traction in organizations and I was interested in how nonprofits could harness its potential to communicate with supporters. One of the first things he did to further my education was to join NTEN as a member and fly to San Francisco for the NTC. I didn't know who anyone was going in, but I'm still friends with many of the people I met there.
Back in New York City, I helped reboot the dormant 501 Tech Club and served as co-organizer for a few years before passing the Facebook group to the next generation of organizers.
I've has worked as a corporate relations manager for United Way of New York City, project director for communications firm Big Duck, and communications director of Catskill Animal Sanctuary, a refuge for farmed animals in New York's Hudson Valley. It was an organization close to my heart as I've been vegan since 2011.
I live in Brooklyn with my husband where we spend our free time debating our next big trip: Greece or Kenya?
