TRANSLATE BETWEEN TECHNICAL & NON-TECHNICAL audiences

I serve as a translator between technical and non-technical audiences. As a strategist at the world's largest aerospace company, I shepherded 100 engineers across 7 company sites to develop innovative science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) challenges based on the innovative, highly technical work they did at the company—yet simple and understandable enough for K-12 students. 

LEVERAGE DATA FOR SOCIAL INNOVATION

I utilize data to develop strategies that align business objectives with long-term innovation and impact. Recently, I analyzed data on the transition of U.S. military and veterans into civilian careers. I then successfully pitched a pilot collaboration between my company and Sword & Plough, a veteran- and minority-owned social enterprise that employs veterans to upcycle military surplus fabric into stylish, durable bags and accessories.. 

CONNECT TALENT TO OPPOrtunitieS

I’m what Author and Professor Adam Grant calls a “Giver,” someone who makes “microloans of knowledge, skills, and connections to other people.” [3] In 2015, I launched “The Give”, a monthly list of social impact jobs and opportunities for changemakers. Since then, the subscriber base has grown to nearly 2,000 early- and mid-career professionals interested in applying their skills in socially responsible companies, nonprofits, and social enterprises. I'm also collaborating with a leading talent management and recruiting agency to cross-promote content among their pool of 40,000+ purpose-driven professionals.
