What piece of your work at NAMI are you most proud of?
My work evolving the Advocate. When I started, I knew I wanted to develop the quality of the content, but I also wanted to improve the magazine’s look and feel. I pour so much effort and passion into making each issue better than the last; there’s nothing like holding the final product.
What’s something about you that would surprise others?
I firmly believe I was a whale in a past life.
