Following are highlights from projects I’ve worked on over the course of my career:
Marine Money Digital Publication and Social Media Channel Launches | 2010 – 2014
My professional journey began at Marine Money, a market research publisher with a legacy of over thirty years’ focus on the global maritime transportation sector and its financial, legal and technical providers. I joined the company in 2010 assigned the task of updating one of its publications, The Official Guide to Ship Registries, from a predominantly print to an exclusively digital format. During my tenure at the organization, I held primary oversight for the property including its searchable directory and blog components, subscriber base segments and social media channels which I launched and grew to followings of over 3,000 over the course of four years.
As I demonstrated proficiency creating and managing digital content, I was asked to take on additional responsibilities including backup support and maintenance of the Marine Money home page, launch of additional social channels and eCommerce development for the company’s emerging portfolio of book titles. Additionally, I frequently advised company clients seeking to expand their own firms’ digital presence on how to approach this work.
New York University Graduate Study in Applied Quantitative Research | 2014 – 2015
I left Marine Money in the fall of 2014 to pursue full-time graduate study in New York University’s Master of Arts program in Applied Quantitative Research. I was one of fourteen students within the program’s second cohort, completing a curriculum incorporating coursework in Design of Social Research, Quantitative Analysis and Data Analysis, along with an independent thesis project exploring the associations between socioeconomic status and mental health within the adolescent population.
Fairfield County’s Community Foundation Thrive by 25 Initiative Launch | 2015 – 2016
While concluding my graduate thesis, I completed an internship entailing program and data analysis for Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to improving equity and quality of life in the region. My primary project involved synthesizing primary and secondary data sources to inform the launch of the foundation’s Thrive by 25 initiative, a commitment incorporating grant allocation to organizations supporting youth development and success, an ambassador program engaging high school and college age students in advocacy and leadership, and partnerships with local businesses and civic leaders fostering education and work opportunities for the region’s emerging adults.
Iona College Education Program Accreditation | 2016 – 2021
Following my completion of graduate school and post-graduate internship, I accepted a position overseeing accreditation, data analysis and reporting for the education department within Iona College. My primary responsibilities entailed analyzing and reporting on effectiveness of education programs as measured by standards outlined by the Association for Advancing Quality in Educator Preparation (AAQEP), and I was integral in developing the plan the department is currently using for its forthcoming review. This work included streamlining internal and public-facing materials and workflows to increase efficiency, transparency and data quality and engage current students, alumni and community partners.
MSEINT Launch, Growth and Marketing Efforts | 2021 – Present
Recently, I joined the team of emerging technology startup MSEINT (pronounced “em-see-int”) overseeing research into growth and funding opportunities, alignment of company mission and branding and establishment of data infrastructure. I invite you to explore the company page and share ideas regarding areas for business development, partnership and specialization. I’m excited to be part of this venture and witness its evolution!
Publio Business Development and Course Creation | 2022 – Present
Publio is an inbound marketing consultancy focused on empowering businesses and entrepreneurs to “think like a publisher” to achieve key goals. I first connected with the team while completing a sequence of Content Marketing workshops they offered during the summer of 2021, subsequently piloting their Publisher’s MO MasterClass during its development stages later that fall. My interest in the material inspired two blog articles, impressing the team and leading to an invitation to join in building on existing company initiatives. Among my initial projects, I’m helping to scale out Publio’s curriculum into a suite of free and premium offerings. I’ve even incorporated my passion for data into this curriculum by developing and teaching a Data Science Fundamentals course.
