Cindy del Rosario-Tapan
Cindy is a seasoned storyteller and communications professional with extensive experience in executive leadership, media relations, narrative strategy, and marketing initiatives. For two decades, she has been telling stories to establish a brand’s voice, create compelling narratives, and produce engaging content in order to communicate effectively across a wide range of platforms. She previously worked for International Women’s Health Coalition in advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights as well as holding senior communication roles at Columbia University, including at the Mailman School of Public Health and Columbia College, U.S. News and World Report’s third-ranked undergraduate university. Prior to that, she worked in an array of communications contexts—beginning with magazines and media companies, such as O, The Oprah Magazine, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, and National Geographic. She earned her BA in Journalism from Penn State University, and her MA in Media Ecology from New York University. Cindy is proud to be a first generation Filipinx American, and loves reading, running, and co-parenting her three kids and one dog with her husband Ed. An occasional yogie, she also enjoys doing puzzles and firmly believes that karaoke — preferably 80s or slow jams — can bring joy to all.
