I got my start working in women's health for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and in environmental advocacy at Oceana, an international oceans conservation non-profit where I served as a core member of the start-up communications team. I helped develop Oceana's web site and played a key role in the creation of its online advocacy and fundraising program.

I left Oceana to join M+R Strategic Services' digital division back in 2002 - before MoveOn.org became a household name.  I started at an entry level and left as a vice president. During the twelve years I was on staff, I played a leading role in growing the firm from a fledgling operation with three staff to a leader in the field of online fundraising and advocacy with a staff of 60 talented individuals across the country.

While at M+R, I helped the Clinton Foundation, Oxfam America, the American Diabetes Association, Defenders of Wildlife, Consumers Union, the U.N. Foundation, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and other leading nonprofits raise tens of millions of dollars online and recruit millions of supporters to their causes.

I live with my husband and two children in the "most famous small town in the world," Woodstock, NY where I serve on the boards of the Woodstock Farm Festival and the Woodstock Day School and write about food - growing it, cooking it, and eating it on my blog, The Garden of Eating.
