Regional Community Engagement Manager, Europe


I am the community engagement manager for the European region at the Internet Society. I focus on supporting our chapters in the region, promoting and defending an open and accessible Internet for all, offering improved services to the community and to Internet Society members, and on broadening the community to strengthen existing trust and the extraordinary relationships that the Internet Society has built over the years.

Before joining the Internet Society, I accomplished 17 years working for the Internet technical community and supporting the Regional Internet Registry system. I carry a skilled record in corporate communications and community relationships, and have over a decade of experience in accountability and member support and engagement, covering a service region of 76 countries.

I obtained Bachelor of Arts in Media and Literary Communications at San Francisco State University and have been trained in crisis communications, internal communications, content creation, event management, social media, and external relations.
