Welcome to my blog! If you’ve made it this far, chances are you have a pretty good sense as to why I am here. But if you can spare a few extra minutes, I invite you to learn a little more about me.
I am a graduate student at Columbia University, where I am studying toward a Master of Science degree in strategic communications. Over the past few semesters, I have discovered that my interests lie somewhere near the intersection of internal communications and organizational development. This blog is a way for me to explore issues relevant to these fields while also becoming more acquainted with the scary world of 21st century technology.
I hold a B.A. in English from the University of Virginia, but what few people know about me is that I started my college career as a math major (and a fair share of grades on my transcript prove it). My current studies challenge me to think creatively and analytically to solve real-world communications problems, and I find that the blend of theory and practice is the perfect balance of left- and right- brain activity.
By day, I am the director of a communications and events office where I’m lucky enough to be able to apply my newly found knowledge and excitement right away.
In my free time (of which I effectively have none), I enjoy running, cooking, and patrolling local farmers markets for unusual ingredients to include in aforementioned cooking. My husband and I recently moved from Manhattan to the suburbs, so we’re enjoying life a bit less hectic these days.
I look forward to having you along for this journey as I explore topics that are both familiar and foreign. I anticipate some interesting discoveries along the way and hope you’ll stick around long enough to weigh in.
