As a public relations and communications professional with nearly 10 years experience in the field, it is my goal to use my proven media placement capabilities, writing skills and knowledge of the industry from a corporate B2B, agency and non-profit perspective to enhance media outreach and build brand awareness. I have a track record of increasing media placement for companies and have published several industry-related articles. I also have experience with speech writing, crisis communication, web-based marketing, design and web copy. My mix of public relations and marketing abilities is an asset to any company that wishes to reach a wide audience in both print and digital communications. In addition, my graduate level education at one of the top universities in the country, The University of Chicago, has enhanced my analytic and research skills to develop new projects and initiatives.
