Temple Grandin, a CSU professor who has autism and one of Time Magazine’s “100
Most Influential People in the World," and me at the 2012 inclusion event I organized.
Despite the snow, 340 people attended, and I received dozens of positive testimonials.
As a journalist, my award-winning work has appeared in the New York Times, Rocky Mountain News, Denver Post, Boulder Daily Camera and the Longmont Times-Call. I have produced radio programs for KGNU, KRCC and AARP national radio, and I am trained in photography, video, audio and Adobe Premiere (video editing) as well as Photoshop. I also have experience in grant writing and event planning.
As a volunteer I helped bring Sudanese women from refugee camps to Boulder, worked with my then-13-year-old daughter to start a weaving project in Kenya and successfully implemented an inclusion campaign to bring awareness of people with disabilities to the Boulder Jewish community.
My training includes a masters degree in journalism, a certificate in multimedia, and nondegree classes from Spanish to digital bootcamp.
When I'm not working, I'm camping in national parks, budget traveling around the world, gardening, running on our beautiful paths, or geeking out on genealogy.
