About

Hi! I’m Joanna.

I’m a policy and communications strategist, writer, and expert in cross-sector coalition and partnership building. I help organisations tell their stories and achieve their goals for a fairer and more sustainable world.

At the White House Office of Management and Budget, I worked on evidence and innovation initiatives to make government work better for citizens. As a social entrepreneur and philanthropy officer, I’ve helped senior executives and grassroots advocates working across violence prevention, climate, and children’s and women’s rights develop more powerful communications and build their movements. My writing has appeared in Next City, Stanford Social Innovation Review, and elsewhere.  I have a Master of Public Policy from Georgetown University, and a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Notre Dame.

I believe in telling the truth (even when it’s difficult), and building bridges (not walls).
