Where do you work and what is your title?

I’m a Senior Account Executive at V2 Communications.

What is your Twitter handle?


Briefly summarize your background. What kind of industry/clients do you work with?
V2 works with clients across several industries, including B2B tech, health tech and clean tech. My clients are in industries such as supply chain, marketing tech, public safety and edge computing.

Describe what you do for PR Club.

I am on the Programs Committee, where I work with a fabulous team to brainstorm, organize and manage the events the Club puts on for members, non-members and PR students.

Name your top three favorite things about PR.

  1. No two days are ever the same—it’s nice being kept on your toes!
  2. The feeling of landing a really awesome media opportunity that you know will make the client happy
  3. Getting to hone all aspects of being a communicator, from public speaking to drafting compelling contributed articles

Do you have a childhood moment when everyone knew you’d be a communications specialist?

In second grade, I had to read a poem for my classmates, their parents and my teachers. My teacher told my mom that I spoke so well, she thought I’d end up in politics! I knew I didn’t want to end up in politics but I knew I enjoyed communications.

What is your top getaway destination?

Anywhere on the beach! Italy is definitely on top of my bucket list.

If you could take a client to any restaurant in Boston, where would you go?

I love going to the North End for dinner, so my pick would be Nico—great food, and not as loud as some of the other restaurants.

Go-to Dunks order?

A medium cold brew with two pumps of caramel and oat milk—but now that it’s fall, replace caramel with pumpkin!
