Career Highlights

  • Building on an external baseline assessment in 2020, I’ve expanded the carbon footprinting for a medium enterprise to factor in site activities, client reporting and intensity metrics. Working with sustainably-minded colleagues, we’re creating a circular economy culture by sharing our innovations in our staff newsletter and in project publicity. Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions have been cut by 35% over the past three years.

  • Developed the media kit and release of a campaign celebrating an unusual archaeological find. Publicity reach of 3.38m views, with 89.6K people engaging directly, and over 83,400 shares on social media. Traditional media coverage exceeded 120 publications, including the Washington Post, the Smithsonian, Archaeology.org and msn.com across at least seven different languages.
