The Annual

I was a Senior Editor for the 2017 issue of The Annual, one of Drake University’s student publications. Our mission statement: “The Annual is a yearly publication for Drake University students dedicated to unleashing the creative arts behind relevant issues, while providing thought-provoking and significant content from a socially-conscious lens.” In addition to both macro editing and copyediting, I also wrote for the publication.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month at Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault

During my time at Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault (IowaCASA), I helped put together a toolkit for the member organizations regarding publicity and communications surrounding Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). In 2016, the national SAAM theme was “Prevention.” I was instrumental in the angle IowaCASA and their member organizations took, #Parents4Prevention. I have been informed that IowaCASA has decided to use the #Parents4Prevention theme for the 2017 publicity campaigns. The toolkit content was created by professionals across IowaCASA. I was personally responsible for the IowaCASA’s online conversations,  #30DaysofSAAM. I compiled and posted content about all aspects of sexual assault awareness and prevention on to IowaCASA’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.


Des Moines Register

As an Our Caucus writer for the Des Moines Register, I posted weekly on Medium about my Iowa Caucus experiences.  The Des Moines Register chose to publish some of my posts on their website as part of the Our Caucus series.
