Before joining Yoast, I was an on-boarding specialist at Moz. I was one of the first remote members of the team hired to support international Moz customers by offering consultative 1:1 walkthroughs. For my independent projects, I focused on improving our team’s communications strategy.
I’m also a freelance editor and Arabic-to-English translator. I collaborate with authors and independent publishers and aim to nurture emerging writers by helping them improve their craft.
As for personal interests, I try to travel as much as I can. This year I traveled to Central America, I spent a fair amount of time in Mexico and Guatemala. Prior to this, I was in Southeast Asia and my last stop was in Cambodia where I volunteered in a literary festival called the Kampot Readers and Writers Festival 2017. We hosted Man Booker Prize-winning writer Madeleine Thien (Do Not Say We Have Nothing), and Jung Chang (Wild Swans). I was the programmer and producer for the festival’s literary and cultural events.
