Communications pro who embraces change, complex projects and innovative collaborations

About

I’ve worked in very different settings over the years — from newspapers to startups to large corporations. But what’s stayed the same is my love for discovering and telling stories that truly connect and make a difference.

One of the things I’m most proud of is crafting content that increases employee engagement and satisfaction. (Download my résumé to read more about how I’ve done this at AT&T.) I also have a knack for helping the executives I support shine, whether they’re communicating in writing, on video or in presentations and meetings.

I like the challenge of communicating in an environment of change. And I’m always looking for ways to make existing systems and processes more efficient and effective. My colleagues would tell you that I’m a calm and diplomatic presence, a strategic thinker and an organized, reliable collaborator. (Read their testimonials to learn more.)

What else motivates me? A deep curiosity and an eagerness to embrace new tools. Over the years, I’ve been a trusted advisor to my managers on emerging technology. I stay current on innovation through my freelance writing on technology topics and through my longtime involvement with the South by Southwest Interactive Conference. My freelance writing, coupled with my background as a former journalist, means I bring standout writing skills to any role.

My goal is to join a forward-thinking, mission-driven organization with colleagues who spark each other’s creativity and innovation — somewhere I can make an impact each and every day.
