  • I believe my English PhD has set me up well for my current career as the Executive Director of a local non-profit, the Zeidler Center for Public Discussion. My job requires that I communicate with thousands of people each year, both in writing and in person. My English degree has given me the confidence to clearly articulate myself, and read/listen closely to multiple perspectives. I initially thought I'd be a professor and I'm so glad I allowed myself to imagine a boarder array of career options. My non-academic path has presented me with incredibly opportunities to work for positive change in the community.
