My Life in Communications

The biggest communications challenge I have faced…
Learning the best way to convey the value of my message to the audience. It’s different with every organization and job I have had – and has never ceased to be the biggest communications challenge I’ve faced.

My favorite communications memory is…
Winning the “Brand of the Year” award at the 2014 SDX Brand Diego Awards.

The most important communications or professional lesson I’ve learned is…
At the end of the day, I’ve learned that connecting professionally is best done by knowing and remembering what’s important to someone personally.

Resources that I really find useful and recommend to other communicators are…
Put yourself out there! Over the past year, I’ve attended as many networking events as possible, joined professional groups, and become involved in community events. This has helped me to learn from other professionals/communicators, and allowed me to hone my own communication skills for the better.

The most valuable thing about my membership with IABC is…
The ability to connect with such a high caliber of like-minded professionals, and the opportunity to expand my own skill-set while doing so.

You should know this about me…
Before I worked for a bank, I toured the US playing lead guitar in a punk band. Music will never cease to captivate my life in some way.
