About Me

Storytelling is my core strength. Whether it's presenting the research objectives of a lab studying Anaplasma marginale, a workshop on the potentially dry topic of e-book formatting and print design for self-publishers, or donor communication materials, I can apply the essential building blocks of a good story to create a compelling message.
