JHU Communication Career Blog Kickoff, Alums Poggio & DiCaro Featured
JHU AAP Staff – August 12, 2013
Posted in JHU AAP Communications.
Recently, the AAP Communication Program and Alumni launched the JHU Communication Career Blog designed “to help provide invaluable career advice that does not come from a textbook or lecture to the AAP Communications community.”
Many Communication graduates face the question, “What can I do with an MA in Communication? What is it like to work in communication? Where should I take my communication career?” According to the AAP Communication, the blog was inspired to help illustrate the successes of many communication professionals as a way to speak about these issues and to further foster community between alums, students, faculty members, and communication professionals not affiliated with JHU.
The blog is open to the Johns Hopkins University MA in Communication students, alumni, applicants, and faculty members, and for other professionals unaffiliated with JHU.
The blog kickoff will begin September 9th and will feature two AAP Alumni as guest bloggers over the course of a month.
First Guest Blogger – Allegra Poggio, MA
Alumna Allegra Poggio, MA, will kick off the JHU Communication Career Blog as the first guest blogger. She is Visceral’s Senior Production Director. She has six years of professional experience with online communication and integrated marketing. During this time, she has been responsible for the management of projects that range from single website builds to integrated programs that involve websites, mobile sites, mobile applications, media plans, social media and video.
Allegra has provided strategic and account support to assist the development of integrated online communication programs for a range of public, private and nonprofit clients. Her experience also includes strategy and the production management of complex technical projects, analyzing web metrics data and developing dashboards and reports to show the effectiveness of online programs. With Visceral, she facilitates day-to-day client relationships and coordinates with the strategy, design and development teams to execute projects.
Prior to joining Visceral, Allegra worked as a Managing Supervisor for Fleishman-Hillard Digital in Washington, D.C. Allegra holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Bates College in Lewiston, ME, and a Master of Arts in Communication from Johns Hopkins University’s Zanvyl Kreiger School of Arts and Sciences Advanced Academic Programs.
After seven years in Washington, where she launched into her digital communication career, Allegra is moving to San Francisco to be Visceral’s first Bay area employee. You can find her most days getting things done with Visceral, traveling a lot, running, dancing, doing pilates, cooking and making sure to get nourished by spending lots of time with friends and family!

Vincent DiCaro, MA, will be the second guest blogger of the AAP Communications Career Blog.
