Ready to Volunteer


I completed my Master of Communication Management at USC's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism in a world much different from the time I started. Finishing the last few months of the degree over Zoom, as we all navigated the new realities of COVID-19, had its own set of challenges. But in the end, it was further proof of how adaptable we are and how vital communication is, regardless of its form.

My capstone project addressed the significance of emotional intelligence in leadership and the broader workplace, a topic that deserves far more attention. Throughout my degree, I specialized in Media & Entertainment and Health & Social Impact, and I am most interested in companies that blend the two, using influential platforms to do good and enact lasting societal change.

Harnessing over a decade of professional experience in media and marketing, I'm proficient at analyzing, strategizing, and delivering complex information in a digestible manner to relevant audiences, and in the most suitable, targeted formats.
