Briefly summarize your background. What kind of industry/clients do you work with?
My PR career began in consumer active lifestyle, representing and traveling with a variety of outdoor industry clients, including those involved in clean water and public health initiatives, which is what ultimately led me to healthcare PR. Since I made the switch, I’ve had the pleasure of working with a wide variety of clients ranging from digital health to health tech to insurance to biopharmaceutical. I’m particularly passionate about working with companies addressing social determinants of health and am honored to play a small role in helping improve health outcomes for vulnerable populations.

- Being able to tap into my creative side and help companies refine their messaging and communicate their stories.

Do you have a childhood moment when everyone knew you’d be a communications specialist?
I’ve always been a social and talkative person. In fact, my family jokes that when I was younger I never stopped talking. So, I think we always knew I would find a career where communicating was a major part of the job description.
