Hey Oberlin folks. I'm a 2013 alum who recently moved to Los Angeles from another part of Southern California. I currently work from home as a full-time contract writer and copy editor - but I'm now looking for a new gig in LA.My experience and interests are largely in communications, marketing, project management and development/fundraising. Within those areas I especially have a strong work background in higher ed, health and wellness, and technology.  That being said, I'm very much open to anything! For what it's worth, my long-term goal is to do communications, development and/or administrative work for progressive organizations focused on environmental and economic justice issues.I would also just like to connect with alums in the area and build out my network a little bit. I'm happy to share a resume or any other information if I may be a good fit for any job. Thank you!
