Hi. I'm

What do I love about professional public relations? Discovering what people have in common and unlocking our potential to make a positive difference in the world by working together strategically.
I draw upon my 25+ years of experience and Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) to develop effective communication strategies that expand the reach, influence, and impact of the organization's mission and vision.
