Personal Info


I am the Managing Partner at Sleight-of-Hand Studios, a digital agency in Washington, DC. I work with nonprofit organizations who want to create relevancy in their web presence. I run discoveries, create content strategy, build requirements, and can't help but do my share of Drupal site building.

Prior to SoH, I served as a business analyst and project manager on web, IT, and survey research projects, mainly for civilian government agencies, at Westat, National Opinion Research Center, AOL, and Teradata.

I hold a BA from Cornell University and a Master of Science in information management Summa Cum Laude from the University of Maryland University College.

SoH is an organization member of the Drupal Association. I am a member of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA), NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network, and the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), for whom I have served as a multi-year Gold Circle Award judge.

In my spare time, I love to cook and play golf. I am a certified wine educator. I am serving a five year term as Strategic Communications Officer for my class in the Cornell Alumni Association.
