Thornton Communications

I dig mission-driven people and organizations. So now I'm using my experience in branding and strategic communications for good causes to craft compelling messages and effective campaigns as a consultant. I also help individuals to discover and hone their personal brand.





Humanity United

Associate Director, Communications

Started as a hire #10 at this human rights philanthropy launched by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and his wife, Pam. I helped to establish the foundation's Strategic Communications team from the ground up. Developed a special focus on brand identity and value-based messaging while managing high-profile coalitions, campaigns & partnerships with government and international media.

Young Presidents' Organization

Communications Associate

YPO connects CEOs and company presidents under 55, as a source of support and mentoring for the special issues they face. I was hired as a junior team member, but helped to re-concept our semi-annual global member print communication from an outdated, black-and-white newsletter to a glossy, A4 magazine. I also provided executive communications support, including speechwriting.
