My Life in Communications
The most valuable thing about my membership with IABC is that no matter where I live and work, there are fellow communicators who I can turn to for advice and friendship. I have had the privilege of serving on the board of directors for IABC in New Jersey, Washington DC, Hong Kong and now San Diego.
Jayanti relocated home to San Diego a few months ago and is searching for a new opportunity in the area.

She established an integrated communications team and directed marketing communications, media relations and employee engagement for a firm of 7000 plus employees in 100 locations across the U.S.
Jayanti also worked as the director of marketing at Triple Canopy, a global security and risk management company headquartered in the Washington DC metro area.
