I'm the TED Prize Storyteller. I execute editorial and communications strategy for the $1 million dollar TED Prize. Prior to joining the TED team, I served as the VP of Programs at the Women's Media Center where I amplified women's voices to change the conversation in media. Before the Women's Media Center, I worked for NYU, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Planned Parenthood Action Fund. My words and works have been featured in GOOD Magazine, CBS News,Alternet, GRIT TV, In These Times, Forbes.com, Rookie Magazine, Ms., The Washington Post, CSPAN, NBC's Today Show, Fox.com, and more. I'm a contributor to several publications including Women of Spirit and Faith's 2011 anthology Women, Spirituality, and Transformative Leadership: Where Grace Meets Power, Madonna and Me: Women Writers on the Queen of Pop, and I Still Believe
