Hello, I'm Grant Mukai
My name is Grant Mukai and I am the Senior Digital Communications Manager for Project HOPE in Maryland.
At Project HOPE, I am responsible for leading the transition of our website to a WordPress platform as well as managing the online communications such as press releases and blog posts which showcase the work of our field offices in over 20 countries.
Before joining Project HOPE, I worked for the American Political Science Association where I helped manage our association's primary website as well as several small-scale WordPress sites devoted to promoting political science and helping the special interest sections organize themselves on the Web. I also served as the primary point of contact for database management and assisted my team with our social media and email marketing while providing excellent customer service to our members in English, French and Spanish.
Previously, I worked at both the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business in Washington and iQ Solutions in Rockville, Maryland, developing email newsletters. Some of the healthcare agencies I worked for include the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). I have also produced and updated English and Spanish webpages for the National Institutes of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS).
Prior to my career switch from journalism to Web content management, I was an Associate News Producer for Wellesley Public Media in the town of Wellesley, Massachusetts, where I produced news reports and documentaries for the local cable access station.
I am a proud alumnus of Boston University's College of Communication where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in French Language and Literature.
In my free time, I can be found dancing Lindy Hop and Blues - two popular styles of social dance.
I hope to hear from you soon!
