I’m a writer, storyteller, content strategist, and the founder & CEO of Sanspeur, a marketing & communications consultancy for mission-driven organizations. My full CV is available on my LinkedIn page.

I write a lot about impact investing — specifically, how to make it more progressive, and the Today In Impact newsletter for Karma Impact. I’m currently co-writing a book about the power dynamics that determine what solutions to global problems get funded, and why we need participatory power.

I have traveled to more than 20 countries across five continents and I’m determined to hit all seven within the next few years. I am based in Washington, D.C. with my houseplant, Benji the Bonsai.

I also perform! I tell true stories on stage through organizations like Story District, Mortified, Perfect Liars Club, and Little Salon. With other DC creatives, I have produced independent storytelling shows about Edgar Allen Poe and the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series. I’m also a founding member and co-writer of the Sirens of Sin, a burlesque cabaret troupe that celebrates legends and fables.

I graduated with honors in literature and history from Mount Holyoke College, the first college for women in the United States. I spent two terms as an undergraduate reading 19th-century English literature at St. Anne’s College, Oxford. I received my MA in American government from Georgetown University.

When I’m not writing or traveling, I’m doing yoga, binging true crime podcasts and British period dramas, and keeping myself constantly caffeinated.
