Other Communications Services
Communications Strategy Development - Working in partnership with your team, RGR Communications will develop a comprehensive, coordinated and feasible communications strategy, taking into account your unique needs, budget and audiences. As an experienced activist, I've learned to be practical and goal oriented, and I draw on these skills to build clear and implementable strategy that gets you where you want to be.
Manuscript preparation - Many of us pile of manuscripts-in-progress and paper ideas sitting on their desk. I can help turn your desk clutter into career-building peer reviewed publications, editorials or press releases and popular media pieces. As an experienced writer, I can pick up your work at any stage and run with it, getting you published quickly. Whether you need coaching around describing the project and structuring your paper or support in responding to reviewers and resubmitting, I can help. I can also help you identify target journals, format your paper, conduct a thorough literature review, draft background and discussion sections, provide copyediting or anything else you need to get your work in print.

Plain Language and Accessibility - With my background in disability justice, I can create plain language summaries, policy briefs, educational modules and other products that broaden your message's reach. I specialize in helping scientists communicate highly technical information to lay audiences, and I bring these same skills to communicating your work in accessible language. Using techniques like visual organizers, cueing and straightforward wording, I ensure access without sacrificing complexity or nuance,
Transcription - I've worked on or lead dozens of qualitative research projects, with hundreds of interviews under my belt. And cuz I'm still waiting for the day that we fully fund community-led, justice and reparations focused participatory action research, well, that means I've also transcribed hundreds of interviews. As a transcriptionist, I'm fast, accurate and empathetic, with an innate understanding of the conversational dynamics of interviews, focus groups and other audio. I'm also able to de-identify as I transcribe, and I'm well-versed in confidentiality and ethics.
Miscellaneous, Whatever You Got Communications Work - I have always loved writing and editing, and am currently growing my writing career. I am available for general editing, science writing, reporting and communications work.
