Work history

State Director
As the State Director for the Humane Society of the United States, I was the acting CEO" in Iowa, handling everything from philanthropy and donor management to government affairs, public relations, and content creation.
Regional Field Director
As the first full-time hire for the League of Conservation Voters in Iowa, I developed the programmatic goals that drove the program for the next two years and were replicated in other programs around the country.
Field Director
My time with Batrice & Associates started as a random LinkedIn message sent to a woman who'd been hired to run the Iowa portion of a 2016 presidential campaign, and grew into a full-time job working with several candidates.
My C&C tenure comes with everything expected of a one-man start-up. Content creation, marketing, accounting, strategic planning, web development, and everything in-between. Most importantly, it has shown me I can learn anything if tinker and google enough
