I love a good story and have spent nearly 15 years telling them as a journalist, marketing professional, and most recently, as a podcaster.
I host and produce the Democracy Works podcast, a collaboration between the McCourtney Institute for Democracy at Penn State and WPSU Penn State, central Pennsylvania’s NPR station and When the People Decide, an eight-part narrative podcast about how everyday people are using ballot initiatives to create political change by bringing issues they care about directly to their. fellow voters.
When I’m not podcasting, I plan and execute all of the McCourtney Institute’s external communications. I also teach journalism in Penn State’s Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications and work with national and international clients as a freelance writer and marketer.
