Dorry tracks the latest trends and developments in social media, and uses that knowledge to craft digital strategies to advance the work of ReThink member groups and collaboratives. She analyzes social media metrics and uses that data to improve digital campaigns. Dorry provides trainings to ReThink members, community, and staff on social media best practices and cutting-edge tips. Some of her recent trainings have included “Building Your Expert Profile,” “Hill Advocacy Using Social Media,” and “Turning your Social Media Moment into a Traditional Media Story.” She also is one of ReThink’s accidental graphic designers and meme creators, and she greatly enjoys sharing a good gif (hard-G).
Dorry earned her master's degree in Communication at Johns Hopkins University, with concentrations in digital, nonprofit, and corporate communication. She received her bachelor’s degree in journalism from American University. Previously, Dorry managed communications for the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health, where she led trainings ranging from “Twitter 101” to “Rapid Response" and "Using Social Media to Enhance Health and Safety Campaigns.” Before that, she worked in the press shop at Public Citizen and as a journalist in Northern Virginia.
When she isn't glued to her iPhone or on the latest blogs, Dorry enjoys cooking and baking (yes, she finds the recipes on Pinterest), exploring new cities, and seeing as many plays as she can.
