communications experiences that have proven me to be a devoted advocate
I have long desired to work in the nonprofit sector. My progressive journalism experience has proven that I am devoted to sharing the stories of those who are unheard. I want to create plans that are effective in making change and working for a nonprofit would allow me to successfully fulfill that dream.

My focus in communities and cultures was sharpened and inspired after taking an extensive course in grant writing and fundraising under the direction of Rick Foster, the Vice President of Programs at W.K. Kellogg Foundation in Battle Creek, Michigan. My expansive knowledge about requests for proposals, letters of inquiry, internal consistency, grant structure and foundation research is all rooted in my desire to make a difference and constantly educating myself.
Although content strategy skills can be translated to any profession, I feel that they are extremely necessary when it comes to nonprofit communication. All companies can benefit from effective workflow and governance and content strategists know what is best for a company and why. My skills in content strategy are tailored to work from scratch, creating social media campaigns that will garner attention, designing wireframes that will translate the voice of the company to a website and dictating style and tone that a company should have within all external and intern communications.
