Berger serves as the vice president for communications at Hillel International and Blazucki works as communications coordinator for a federal agency.
Berger is a former board member of NLGJA and holds a master’s degree in national security policy and a bachelor’s degree in political communications, both from The George Washington University in Washington D.C. He now manages all aspects of Hillel International’s communications and media strategy, and entered the position with nearly two decades of experience as a journalist and communications professional, with a focus on politics. His experience includes five years as vice president at Dezenhall Resources, a political reporter for NBC News and National Journal, homeland security correspondent for Congressional Quarterly and the national political correspondent for JTA.
Blazucki manages and edits publications, web content, information requests, marketing, and social media in Washington, D.C. Her previous positions include agency editor at the Peace Corps, editor of the Philadelphia Gay News and more than 15 years’ experience as a freelance résumé writer. While the editor at Philadelphia Gay News, Blazucki led the staff to win more than 20 awards. She serves as a director on NLGJA’s national board. Blazucki received her B.A. in mass communications, with a minor in women’s studies from Towson State University.
“Matt and Sarah are two of NLGJA’s most dedicated members and volunteers,” said NLGJA Executive Director Adam K. Pawlus. “I have no doubt that, under their leadership, this year’s Dateline: DC will be the best yet.”
Dateline: DC is an evening of networking and friendship, celebrating NLGJA’s commitment to advancing fair and accurate coverage of the LGBTQ community. The event includes a hosted bar and hors d’oeuvres.
