Social Media

As assistant director of public affairs for publications and media at the Elliott School of International Affairs, I created the school’s Twitter handle, @elliottschoolgw, which Foreign Policy magazine called one of the “100 best Twitter users in international affairs.”

In January 2011, I was invited to be part of a panel fielding readers’ questions in the Washington Post Live Q&A, “Campus Overload Live with Jenna Johnson: College social media” with Marc Parry (Chronicle of Higher Education) and Patrick Powers (Webster University).

I have been quoted on social media in a variety of publications, including the Washington Post, and “Tools of engagement: Universities reaching to the private sector for new perspective and best practices” by Parnell, Larry; Parmley, Julia. Public Relations Tactics, Oct ’09, Vol. 16 Issue 10, p16.

A photo blog I curated was part of the TBD community network. TBD says of the blog: “Beautiful photography presented in a big way, letting the images shine like they’re supposed to on the Web.”

I also chaired the Council for Advancement and Support of Education’s (CASE) annual conference for media relations professionals March 14-15, 2011, and Feb. 6-7, 2012 — both in Washington, D.C.
