When I’m not working, you could find me…

Enthusiastic, Curious, Creative
My Life in Communications
The biggest communications challenge I have faced…
Hmmm, tough to pick just one. I managed damage control after the organization I was working for announced that a controversial keynote speaker would be headlining our annual fundraising event. I tried, and failed, to break down departmental silos and internal communication barriers at another former employer. And of course it’s always a challenge to design creative and effective communications on a limited budget.
My favorite communications memory is…
Seeing the finished product or end result of a completed project that began as a small idea on on a blank piece of paper or a whiteboard brainstorming session.
The most important communications or professional lesson I’ve learned is…
Trust your intuition.
Resources that I really find useful and recommend to other communicators are…
Wunderlist is an awesome mobile app that I use for managing all of my various projects and to-do lists. I can create shared lists with collaborators, assign tasks, and set due dates. Recommended!
The most valuable thing about my membership with IABC is…
I have really enjoyed the opportunity to meet so many people with such a diverse range of skills and experience.
You should know this about me…
I try not to take myself or, anything too seriously. Life is short, and laughter is the best medicine.
