Public CV/Resume 2018

Fostering Personal & Professional Brand Influence Through Optimizing Corporate & Community Responsibility Initiatives


Mission Statement

I help raise the profile of nonprofit organizations and their community responsibility initiatives through strategic branding practices. I often impart this sentiment for professional and personal success, as implied by the simple and popular idiomatic assertion: “Put your own oxygen mask on first, before putting one on another.”

Adopting evidence-based practices along with a perpetual pursuit of empathy when approaching interpersonal and professional relations is critical to success and organizational advancement.
