My most recent feature, Miles to Go: Women Activists Reflect on the Road Traveled, premieres on September 30th, 2014. Please contact me to request a screener copy.
In 2010, I co-produced, directed, and edited When We Stop CountingThe film, which follows six Latino high school students in Crete, Nebraska, merges student stories with voices of administrators, parents, and scholars to explore community response to demographic change.

When I worked for the Nebraska Department of Education, I had the opportunity to produce a few documentary shorts promoting the work of the agency and best practices in schools across the state. (The majority of my work for the Department was more along the lines of technical assistance webcasts, broadcasts of State Board of Education meetings, and video-based trainings.)

As the staff correspondent and communications specialist for the Nebraska Council of School Administrators, I wrote feature articles for their quarterly journal. I also started and managed a Twitter account (@NCSAToday) and wrote semi-weekly blog posts digesting federal education policy for school administrators.
