My Life in Communications

The biggest communications challenge I’ve faced …
Having enough hours in the day! As communicators, we support every segment of the business so it can be a challenge to prioritize and understand how to effectively satisfy everyone.

My favorite communications memory is …
During my senior year of college, I interned in the press department at MTV Networks and had the opportunity to work during the New Year’s Eve broadcast live from MTV studios in Times Square.

The most important communications or professional lesson I’ve learned is …
Always ask questions and take advantage of every opportunity to learn. Whether it’s attending industry conferences and networking events, or volunteering for a cross-functional project team, I am constantly looking for ways to improve my knowledge.

Resources that I really find useful and recommend to other communicators are …
Network, network, network! I make it a point to attend as many professional development events as I can to learn from the experts and to expand my personal network. You never know what opportunities may present themselves

The most valuable thing about my membership with IABC is …
The opportunity to meet and learn from communications professionals from around San Diego and the world.

I got my very first driver’s license when I moved to San Diego five years ago.
