I’m a writer, salsa dancer, policy wonk, marathon runner, traveler, preacher’s daughter, and mom of a head-strong five-year-old.
I moved to Barranquilla from Miami in July 2012, and then to Medellín in July 2014. I’ve lived in lots of places, but I’m still a small town girl from Georgia.
Professionally, I fight for good, helping nonprofits achieve their missions through effective communications, policy analysis and advocacy, and grant writing. You can learn more about my consulting services here: www.cstricklandconsulting.com. Previously, I worked as chief lobbyist and Director of Public Policy for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Florida. I hold a B.A. in Latin American Studies from Yale University.
