issue advocacy + politics
Communication does more than get the word out. It can change minds — and change lives. I use writing and communication as activism, to engage and catalyze the public.
Healthcare is a focus of my issue advocacy work. I educate people about engagement in their own wellness, from the doctor’s office to the ballot box. I write extensively on the Affordable Care Act, patient advocacy and informed decision-making. But I also create content to engage people on topics including women’s issues, LGBTQ equality, social justice and much more, through public education campaigns, social change communication, coordinated advocacy and social media strategy.
I proudly served as Deputy Digital Director for Obama for America-Michigan in 2012 and as Communications + Media Coordinator for Lisa Brown, Oakland County, MI, Clerk/Register of Deeds. I’m a contributor to Eclectablog, a widely respected political news and commentary blog.
