I am a passionate content marketing strategist, communications professional and award-winning writer with a history of revolutionizing marketing and communications programs. 

I have a talent for developing thoughtful, engaging content that maximizes brand awareness, elevates  communications strategies and consumer engagement and drives profit. I bring a unique balance of tactical and leadership intelligence developed through a decade of producing innovative, creative and effective content, while also driving digital communications, marketing and change initiatives.

I believe past supervisors, peers and staff would say they genuinely enjoyed working with me and for me, and that they would do so again.
