Arafel Buzan


Raised on an animal rescue for abandoned farm animals, Arafel developed a passion for progressive policy at a young age. Arafel joined the DG+CO team in December 2015, where she works on research projects, media analysis, campaign development, and outreach to promote the diverse goals represented by our clients. With a background in medical research, politics, and robotics, Arafel specializes in digital analytics for DG+CO’s health and science clients.

Arafel attended the Johns Hopkins University, where she studied political science and pre-health studies. Prior to joining DG+CO, Arafel leveraged her knowledge of communications, policy research, and data analysis at organizations such as the Johns Hopkins Medical Institute, i2 Learning, and Meltwater. Her various job titles ranged from Media Consultant to Robotics Teacher.

With admittedly eclectic interests, Arafel spends her time cooking rustic cuisine, reading contemporary Russian non-fiction, and trying to learn the banjo.
