What I Do

I'm a very luck girl.

I'm an editor at Idealist.org, one of the largest nonprofits online. We currently have over 25,000 jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities listed on our site by nonprofits, social enterprises, and government agencies from around the world (stop by if you're ready to take action on a cause you care about!). As an editor, I get to create, curate, and share helpful job hunting and career building tips for people who want to work in the social impact space.

In doing this work, I've deepened my understanding of what it takes to work for social change and have strengthened my skills in social media, content marketing, and public relations. Outside of Idealist, I love sharing the tips and tricks I continue to learn about nonprofit communications and building a meaningful career. For seven years I ran a successful personal blog about life as a nonprofit newbie and continue to write and speak about working in the nonprofit sector.

While I love what I do, who wants to talk about work all the time?! If you love Scandal, Brooklyn, good food, and coffee, we'll probably get along just fine.

Let's Work Together

Maybe you heard some organizations are blogging, but aren’t sure what it can do for your organization. (Hint: It can grow your community of supporters and strengthen your brand.)

Maybe you see all of these organizations crushing it on social media, but don’t know what you can do with your limited time, staff, and budget. (Hint: Figure out where your audience is and clarify what successful engagement looks like for your organization.)

Maybe you work with ambitious young professionals and want to help them find work they’ll love, but aren’t sure what they need to know. (Hint: Encourage informational interviews and a highly targeted job search.)

I can help with these challenges and more. I write, speak, and consult on the following topics.

Blogging and Social Media
-How your organization can get started blogging (and why you should)
-How to develop an editorial calendar for your organization
-How to figure out what you should be posting in the first place
-How to measure success
-How to leverage social media for events

Career Building
-How to develop a networking framework
-How to network using social media (tools and tactics)
-How to tailor your resume and cover letter to a job
-How to develop leadership skills and excel at work
