Throughout my career, I've helped professors attain global media coverage of their important research, shared stories of innovative entrepreneurs, and produced and managed content in print media and online. I’m self-driven, intuitive, and thrive where creativity is welcomed. Empathy is my super power.

With more than 15 years of experience as a communications professional, I've excelled in management roles in communications and public relations serving institutions of higher education, legal services, and the arts.

I love managing complex projects with a big picture scope, although I have a sharp eye for details as well. Throughout my career, I've managed a number of impactful projects, such as the launch of the University of Pittsburgh's Twitter and Facebook accounts, production of Chatham University's institutional magazine, and the redevelopment of Eckert Seamans' website.

I graduated magna cum laude from Ohio University with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism.
