What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I manage the digital marketing and day-to-day operations of The Doe Fund’s communications department.

How do you unwind from a busy day? These days, binge-watching shows I’ve already seen. It feels like every week of 2020 has brought a new crisis that upends the world, so it’s nice to return to something comfortable and familiar.
