On 1 September 2018 I began working with DNV GL in Oslo, Norway. I'm part of the team responsible for employee communications, and as of 1 October 2019 I’m also managing the corporate social media accounts.
From 2013 to 2018, I worked for the Arctic Council Secretariat in Tromsø, Norway, where I was responsible for communications. Check out any of the following links to see some of what this involved.
Facebook: Arctic Council
Before coming to work for the Arctic Council, I worked with the team at The Arctic Institute, where I produced weekly briefings on current events in the Arctic that were delivered to nearly 1,500 subscribers in 45 countries. Our subscribers included representatives of the foreign ministries of every Arctic state, most oil majors, and countless other government and civil-society organizations. I also managed The Arctic Institute's Twitter account
I worked from 2009-2011 in Washington, DC and 2011-2013 in Germany for the Bertelsmann Foundation / Bertelsmann Stiftung. For them, I managed the worldwide network of writers (up to 120 authors, 9 editors, 60 countries) that underlies www.futurechallenges.org.
Prior to joining the Bertelsmann Foundation in 2009, I worked on global business development for the AARP Global Network, which put me in touch with representatives of organizations serving the over-50 population in many different countries.
From 2000-2007 I worked as a rowing coach at various clubs and universities around the U.S.
I was born in Maine, but grew up in Alexandria, Virginia. I attended high school at T.C. Williams and at Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts.
