I'm the Senior Director of Communications at MailChimp, the world's leading marketing automation platform for small business. I lead MailChimp's public relations, corporate, and employee communications teams. Previously, I managed MailChimp's marketing content team. In that role, I developed the company's style guide and voice and tone guide. Before that, I was a magazine editor, and a freelance copywriter and marketing consultant. I love helping businesses elevate their brands and reach their customers through clear, kind, and transparent communication. 

I've written for publications like Forbes, A List Apart, and Design Sponge and spoken about web content and communications at conferences around the world. I wrote a book with Nicole Fenton called Nicely Said: Writing for the Web with Style and Purpose, published by New Riders in 2014. I have a bachelor's degree in Communications from Northeastern University and a master's degree in Strategic Communications from Washington State University. I live in Atlanta with my husband and daughter.
