National PTA

Responsible for well more than just bake sales, the National Parent Teacher Association is actually the oldest and largest child advocacy organization in the country. With over 5 million members in 2008, PTA worked at the local, state, and federal levels to empower families to speak up for all children.

From 2007–2009 I worked at the PTA national headquarters as their senior writer & editor, writing speeches for the executives, creating board reports on behalf of the CEO, and editing various publications.

I established a presence for the leadership on social networks; wrote and edited their annual reports (also art directing the 2007 report, and generating the concept for the 2008 report); and was appointed the communications department lead for legislative affairs and the PTA national convention.
