Whether online or off, people need to connect with each other. Events, websites, emails, social media, are all great tools for relationship building. As a communications professional I understand what it takes to effectively promote an organization's mission and goals utilizing a number of outreach mediums.  From career fairs and essay contests, to planning celebrity events and navigating Twitter; I worked with a variety of organizations and I find strength in making connections.  Let me help point you in the right direction!
