Communications Specialist

Oklahoma Foundation for Medical Quality

Coordinator for the information campaign for the National Influenza Project under contract to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and the Department of Health and Human Services. 

Developed strategies and coordinated advertising and social marketing efforts for ten regional coordinators across the nation.  Constributed to development of national information clearinghouse Website, and trained leadership and regional coordinators in writing for online resources.

As a partner in this national effort, I worked closely with partners in international pharmaceutical companies, federal partners such as CDC and NIH, as well as media and other partners on local levels.

Strategic marketing for this project included producing messages for highly sophisticated audiences composed of physicians, scientists, researchers and business leaders, but also messages and "pitches" to laymen who were the ultimate target of our "social marketing"  strategy aimed at increased uptake of vaccines and resulting improved health outcomes.

A wide variety of methods and channels were coordinated in this work.  Highly technical information was transmitted to healthcare professionals and international partners in Pharma.

Complex strategies were also used and developed for regional coordinators to capitalize on social networks and associations across the country.  This work included representation at health fairs, conferences, and "faith-based" events as well. 


University of Central Oklahoma - College of Business

Taught business communications courses to undergraduate business students, including Administrative Communications, which I taught as a heavily public affairs-oriented class.  In this class we used game-playing scenarios in which the class divided into competing firms, interacted and adjusted as the scenarios changed.  The exercise, called The Glass Bead Game, was an effective innovation in teaching, which the students responded to with great enthusiasm.

Taught for four years as an adjunct at night and then as a full time instructor from Fall 03 through Spring 06.

Taught a very similar version of Businees Communications classes I taught at OU, including heavy emphasis on technical leverage for the business communicator, but also emphasis on the importance of understanding interest groups within and without the firm, and the importance of relationships.

Extensive mentoring and counseling of students at this school.  Some research and presentation at conferences. 

Adjunct Professor

University of Oklahoma - Price College of Business

Taught business communication principles and applications to undergraduate students in the Price College of Business. 

In our classes we examined effective business communication practices, but also the underlying strategic foundations and tactical applications of communication in the modern era.  Students were asked to produce the documents which I felt were pervasive and important in the business environment.  These included basic business letters, resumes, blogs, Websites and e-newsletters. 

Students also made presentations in two formats.  I taught my 10 step template for powerful business briefings and asked each student to present a ten-minute business briefing, using the method.  Students were also asked to prepare a consulting presentation in a team format.

An essential element of this course was the examination of Persuasion and its underlying philsophical and psychological foundations.  I found the students responded very well to this unique approach.
