When I’m not working, you could find me…
Walking our two pups to Balboa Park, biking around Mission Bay, hiking San Diego trails or shopping for things we don’t need, all with my spouse, Robert.
Three words that best describe me:
Creative, Hardworking, Fair
My Life in Communications
The biggest communications challenge I have faced…
In an early career marketing job, two brothers ran the small firm and weekly fist fights between them were common place … sometimes you just need to move on.
My favorite communications memory is…
My first “real” job out of college working for two women at a national company taught me more about professionalism, hard work, good management and fun than any job since.
The most important communications or professional lesson I’ve learned is…
Try to live by the four agreements: Be impeccable with your word; Don’t take anything personally; Don’t make assumptions; Always do your best.
Resources that I really find useful and recommend to other communicators are…
Associated Press Stylebook; Pantone Guide to Communication with Color by Leatrice Eiseman; and autobiographies really teach about people different from yourself. I’m enjoying the Clive Davis book currently.
The most valuable thing about my membership with IABC is…
The lunch lectures and seminars and the regional and international conference (when it’s on the West coast and a public agency can afford it!)
You should know this about me…
I like wine!
