About

Hi! I’m Justine.

I’m a professional speechwriter living in Washington, DC. I’ve worked for the Secretary and Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation, as well as the Administrator and Deputy Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration.

Transportation policy is often complicated and wonky. But there are simple ideas at the heart of it. How do we make systems safer? How do we move people and goods more efficiently? My job is to find and tell those stories in the most effective way possible.

It’s a great privilege – and responsibility – to provide some of today’s most influential transportation leaders with their words. But I also enjoy writing as myself.

I’ll be using this site to write about a variety of topics: tricks of the speechwriting trade, life hacks, personal finance, my adventures in DC, and much more. I’ll also be featuring some of my freelance work from sites like The Billfold.
