Where do you work and what is your title?
Senior Media Manager, PAN Communications
What is your Twitter handle?
Briefly summarize your background. What kind of industry/clients do you work with?
I currently specialize in media relations primarily working with clients in PAN’s healthcare portfolio. Part of my role is also rotating on/off clients for 3-6 months as a media strategist for a variety of reasons including financial events (earnings, IPOs,) executive comms, etc. My background is primarily in B2B tech/healthcare agency-side. Before agency life, I started my career at a health-tech start up.
Describe what you do for PR Club. I am on the membership committee and am always pushing for more student involvement!
I am a member of the BOD assisting primarily with content creation and planning.
Name your top three favorite things about PR.
- No day is ever the same
- I am constantly learning
- That feeling when a scrappy idea becomes a talk track and that executive talk track lands in a primetime broadcast slot or finds a home in a tier one headline – the best.
Do you have a childhood moment when everyone knew you’d be a communications specialist?
My chatter-box tendencies and thirst for knowledge as a child probably gave it away.
What is your top getaway destination?
When planning a getaway, I look for destinations where I can fully unplug. PR professionals are wired to be “on” all of the time, so I try to find the “off switch” in my free time (this usually includes either beach time or activities in nature.)
If you could take a client to any restaurant in Boston where would you go?
Recently I went to Mare in the North End for a client dinner and highly recommend!
Go to Dunks order?
More of a Starbucks gal, but for Dunks I typically go for an iced coffee w/ light French vanilla swirl (or pumpkin swirl if it’s fall…obviously.)
