“If you partner with Carmel, she will delight you. There’s nothing she can’t do. Carmel excels at strategic communications, media relations, digital strategy, op ed writing, training, and more. In particular, her meeting facilitation skills are the best I’ve seen. People love working with Carmel.” Margot Friedman, Principal of Dupont Circle Communications “Pryor Engagement's insightful approach and exceptional work in crafting our new Communications Roadmap transformed our view of the role of communications from what we once saw as a mere promotional tool into a strategic pillar for demonstrating our impact. Not only did they bring a wealth of knowledge and rich experience in our field to the table, but their collaborative spirit and enthusiasm infused the entire process with both joy and purpose. Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Pryor Engagement and anticipate the opportunity to collaborate with them again in the future.” Kavita Khandekar Chopra, Managing Director, Strategy & Engagement, re:power “For a long time, I have wanted to translate my scholarly expertise into a form that was more accessible to the general public, and have had a bit of anxiety transitioning from academic to public intellectual. Carmel's skill in translating my voice and research into engaging op-eds that resonated with readers was impressive. Her ability to simplify complex ideas into clear, concise prose was evident in every piece. She is an excellent collaborator who balances the needs of any particular genre with the voice and intent of the author. Carmel's enthusiastic approach to collaboration and commitment to excellence make her invaluable to any publication or individual seeking impactful and compelling content.” Reiko Hillyer, Associate Professor of History at Lewis & Clark College and author of A Wall Is Just a Wall: The Permeability of the Prison in the Twentieth-Century United States



Building strategic partnerships to solve the social injustice issues of our time, implementing communications strategies to drive narrative change, managing advocacy campaigns to influence behavior and policy change, revolutionizing digital media tactics to build people power, and utilizing technology to create social change have all influenced my strong belief that strategic communications and human-centered technology have the power to support historically disempowered and oppressed people in creating their own agencyMy background in social impact communications strategy paired with my education in media, technology, and business provide me with a unique set of skills to seek opportunities to do what I love: connect people to information, tools, and networks to gain freedom, security, and a thriving life.

Self-Starter: I am autonomous by nature and highly motivated; I need little or no direction or management in order to be effective.
