Through outreach activities and virtual and in-person programming, including the USIP Speakers Bureau, Sturma works with national networks and local organizations across the U.S. to inform Americans about USIP’s mission and work.
Sturma has fifteen years of experience in outreach, communications, and public education with USIP, U.S.-China Education Trust, Close Up Foundation, and Global Youth Leadership Conference. She has a bachelor’s degree with honors in political science from Union College and a master’s degree with merit from the University of Glasgow focused on the role of China in the international arena.
