Personal Statement: 

As a chair of the Membership and Outreach Committee, I'm excited to join IECA's great work during this turbulent time in environmental communication!  Most of my work has been in marketing and community development with public and private groups ranging from the International Red Cross to public and international development agencies. My recent research explores issues in global communication and 'sustainability', especially strategic campaigns of indigenous populations such as the #NoDAPL movement. I've also recently published about health care for rural populations, how social media is embedded in public agencies, and why global initiatives, such as the Sustainable Development Goals, are facing obstacles with Western audiences and other stakeholders. I look forward to learning more together!
