She’s played a lead strategic role in solving every conceivable riddle, building programs from the ground up, helping organizations right the ship and taking mature digital operations to new heights. She’s done it for major Democratic Party committees; internationally recognized nonprofits, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Conservation International and the USO; and private-sector organizations like The Washington Post.
