What is one of your biggest communication challenges?
Communicating the importance of good media relations to the C-Suite and how the process of building relationships with reporters work.
One of your top 5 proudest career moments:
In 2003, I had an event at the National Press Club in Washington, DC and one of the most influential pension reporters attended. At the end of the event he told me how helpful I was to him and how I was a good resource for him. I was completely floored.
Best advice you've ever heard:
Treat the cleaning person and the CEO with the same respect!
There will always be people who beat you that you believe have no business beating you. It is called motivation! ( as it relates to running 5K races)
Why are you a part of IABC?
I wanted to be a part of a close-knit group of like-minded professionals dedicated to helping advance the profession. Also I enjoy the exchange of information and resources and I wanted to get involved.
What do you like to do when you are not being an awesome communicator?
Traveling, spending time with family, running 5Ks and gardening.
