About Me

I'm from Minneapolis, Minnesota, which will always be home. I received my masters degree in public policy from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. For the last seven years, I've been living in Washington, DC, where I do web analytics and digital content strategy for the US Department of Health and Human Services. My years working for the Federal Government taught me how to work with a diverse group of players, get buy in, and move things forward. I'm married with one kid and another on the way (keep your fingers crossed for a girl!).
