As a new member of the TBG team, I bring deep experience from both sides of policy communications, crisis reaction, nonprofit challenges, media relations and honing the perfect message. Whether you are working with journalists, your board of directors, your legislators, your donors or your customers, the most important questions are always the same: What is your key message, and who is your key audience? As a longtime news writer, nonprofit editor and consultant and award-winning book author, I will help TBG get you to the answers.
I have spent the past three years consulting, writing and editing for some of Colorado’s most prominent nonprofits, including the Colorado Health Foundation, Mental Health Center of Denver, Atlantic Philanthropies and more. I was previously a 25-year writer for The Denver Post, specializing in health care, public policy and major projects taking me to every corner of the state. A Colorado food crisis in 2011 led me to authorship of the Colorado Book Award-winning “Eating Dangerously,” with Jennifer Brown. I graduated from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Family time is always first, and we spend it participating and watching sports, hiking and skiing Colorado’s great outdoors, traveling to see more family and searching for the perfect Instagram shot. All the Fourteeners is on the bucket list.
