What I Do
My primary role is to secure media coverage for research, faculty expertise, and other exciting things happening at Rutgers–New Brunswick. I’m responsible for pitching content and responding to media queries within the 24-hour news cycle. It is extremely rewarding to share what our faculty, students and staff do with the world!

Working on the media strategy around the 2020 Presidential Election was a highlight of mine thus far at Rutgers. Throughout the election cycle and during the coronavirus pandemic, the news was consistently changing and it was a welcome challenge to keep up and pivot. I was so proud to secure media placements for our faculty during such an important time in history.
