I most recently reign from the PR department at BBDO, where I worked with some of the top brands across the nation. As the day-to-day media contact for all the agency's North America offices, I actively sought opportunities to showcase BBDO's work for its clients, developed story ideas to pitch to the media and built relationships with reporters. Prior to BBDO, I worked in the Corporate Communications department at Ketchum, one of the top five PR agencies in the world. Supporting a team of eight individuals based in the US and London, it was crucial for me to stay organized, attentive and flexible at all times, especially since I routinely liaised with global colleagues at all levels, from associate to CEO. Ketchum selected me to move from a small town in Colorado to New York City because of my consistently positive attitude, drive to succeed, dedication to my work and attention to detail. These qualities paid off during my time at Noodles & Company, when I was without a manager for many months but still succeeded in pulling in national cooking segments, securing front page articles and coordinating national field marketing programs for the company.
