La Mesa, CA
IABC Member Since:
“If we’re not supposed to dance, why all the music?”
Three words that best describe me:
Driven, Inquisitive, and Loyal
When I’m not working, you could find me…
At my son’s baseball games, eating Mexican food, relaxing on a weekend getaway, in a Yoga class, or anywhere the sun is shining.
My Life in Communications
The biggest communications challenge I have faced…
Truly, every day is a new challenge in this industry. But that’s why I love the work I do. I feel blessed to be in the position I’m in and to lead such an incredible team of communications professionals.
My favorite communications memory is…
My first live shot as a young, new-on-the-scene, television journalist. What a rush!
The most important communications or professional lesson I’ve learned is…
Relationships matter. A lot.
Resources that I really find useful and recommend to other communicators are…
Associations, webinars, conferences, workshops, etc. I think it’s so important to never stop learning and growing, both personally and professionally.
The most valuable thing about my membership with IABC is…
I find the annual IABC International Conference to be one of the most informative and enjoyable opportunities available to communication professionals. I highly recommend attending.
You should know this about me…
I’m a bit of a perfectionist, a workaholic and, truth be told, somewhat competitive.
