My Work

Here are some links to my work:

I love writing year-end ask letters, using all the best-practices research to yield the most gifts. I wrote this one for New American Pathways.

I enjoyed writing the content and coming up with the tagline for redefinED:Atlanta, a new organization working to improve opportunities for students in Atlanta Public Schools. I also wrote the content for Learn4Life, another new education organization.

The Lupus Initiative needed a PowerPoint aimed at general practitioners, who might not think of lupus as a possibility in patients with certain symptoms. In addition to writing the copy for the PowerPoint and working closely with the designer, I came up with the theme: “When you hear hoofbeats, you are taught to think horses not zebras. For many women, lupus is a zebra. But when your patient is a woman of color in her childbearing years, lupus is not a zebra, it’s a horse.” I later adapted the PowerPoint for use in the Native American community.

While at the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University, I built the website from scratch, creating all content and focusing on marketing our work to scholars around the world.

I have had the privilege of working on several projects with The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, including a booklet on nurturing philanthropy in children that won a 2018 Phoenix Award from the PRSA-Georgia Chapter. I wrote content for the 2015 annual report, including profiles of Joel Barber, Aimah Dawkins, and Roger Key.

I also wrote this report about Champions for Children, which benefits children with special needs. 

I wrote the content for the capital campaign website for Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett. 

I produced this advocacy video for the Georgia Medical Foods Coalition. 

I wrote this Parent Engagement Toolkit for Communities in Schools of Georgia.


I have written many op-eds about education for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Get Schooled blog, which I founded in 2004 and managed until 2006. Here are a few:

Are we using scare tactics to pressure kids to perform better on state tests?
