My role as the Marketing & Communications Specialist brings my passion for storytelling at Harvard to the Arboretum. Dedicated to helping promote the botanical collections and the exciting science and research happening here, I hope to ignite curiosity, offer insight, and open inspiring perspectives at such an important time in history.

I come to the Arboretum from within the Harvard community as an arts and science contributor for the Harvard Gazette covering campus-wide events and creating relevant student and faculty profiles. I will continue to engage and inform the broad community as I share the Arboretum’s role as a leading institution in research, and as a cherished Frederick Law Olmsted-designed landscape and National Historic Site. There’s just something special about being with the trees.
