The bottom line up front (BLUF): Moving to D.C. opened up the incredible opportunity for me to earn my Master’s degree from the Communication, Culture, and Technology program at Georgetown University. I will use my background in operations and logistics along with my MA degree and most current experience to pivot into the world I’m passionate about- communications. I found that I have a natural talent for dealing with crises and finding solutions for messaging problems. I am looking for a role in strategic, corporate communications or consulting, and am excited to bring my enthusiasm and skills to a new position.
