Professional Experience:
Highly experienced in designing and implementing communications strategies tailored to a variety of audiences, leveraging key messages to influence national and local policies. In 2018, as the communications coordinator for the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF), I have designed and run communications strategies for events in Nairobi, Bonn and Katowice, attended by almost 3,000 people and watched online by other 140,000 via social media. Concurrently, I designed and managed media workshops with journalists from across 3 continents and produced interviews with leading figures in sustainability. I have liaised with journalists and media companies to pitch stories and promote regional and global events; as a result, media mentions reached over 40 million readers globally in the last six months of 2018.
As the communication officer for the CGIAR Programme in Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security in Latin America I helped leverage scientific content to influence local and national policies in Colombia and Central America by producing articles, videos, photos, webinars in English and Spanish and coordinating events across the region.
I have covered environmental science topics in the last 10 years for National Geographic Magazine, US environmental website, Food Tank: The Think Tank for Food, ENDS Europe, among others, reporting and editing content across print, online, newswires, broadcasting and social media channels for specialist and non-specialist audiences. Most of my reporting has involved interviewing scientists, working with highly technical reports and translating complex information into copy accessible for all audiences. Some of the topics I have focused on include: atmospheric science, climate models, agriculture, environmental policy, ocean science and biodiversity conservation.
