Following a stint as a freelance reporter, she served as a public relations professional in the nonprofit sector working to enhance community service through storytelling and online engagement.

We’re launching Operation: Whipcrack to learn what support may be needed in the Philippines as Super Typhoon Hagupit, known locally as Ruby, is expected to make landfall.¬†Tomorrow, a four-man recon team departs for Manila to establish a temporary base of operations and take shelter from the incoming storm.

Should a follow-on response be needed, volunteer members can learn what’s needed¬†before deploying on an international operation with Team Rubicon here.
