Communications Manager

Bio

With more than 20 years of experience in communications, I’ve worked in a variety of media roles. Now I’m focused on expanding WIA’s inclusive and supportive community and highlighting our work in order to achieve our goal of advancing all women and non-binary creatives in the field of animation.

After attending college in Pasadena, CA, I began my journalism career, working for various Southern California newspapers where I covered breaking news and entertainment. I then transitioned into communications for non-profits and I haven’t looked back!

When I’m not posting, liking and sharing, you can find me behind my sewing machine or playing with my kids and dogs.
