With more than 15 years of experience as a communications professional, I excel in management roles in communications and public relations serving institutions of K-12 education, higher education, corporate services, and the arts.

I love managing complex projects with a big picture scope, although I have a sharp eye for details as well. Most recently, I founded and launched AIU Connections, an award-winning magazine that shares the positive impact of the Allegheny Intermediate Unit's community partnerships. I graduated magna cum laude from Ohio University with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism.
