Growing up, I knew I wanted to be a journalist. I loved writing, telling stories and talking an awful lot...just ask my kindergarten teacher. It wasn’t until I went to college that I learned about the whole wide world of public relations, and I guess you could say the rest is history. 

 

Since graduating from UW-Milwaukee, I’ve lived and loved the agency life, working on a range of clients from hospitality and home furnishings to plastics and pest control. Throughout my career, I’ve enjoyed all areas of public relations, with key areas of expertise including: content strategy and message development, thought leadership campaigns, crisis communications and reputation management, influencer marketing, product and brand launches, grand openings, and national event activations. 

 

Whether it be high-level brand strategy, executing on the details, or reporting on the insights, I appreciate and value each step of the journey. In the ever-changing world of PR, I encourage my teams to remain nimble, adapt to change, and create smart, strategic programs scaled to meet client’s needs.

 

I believe in building strong relationships, developing trust with clients and media, and helping connect the two to tell meaningful stories. I’m passionate about fostering teamwork and mentoring to help others on their career journey. I also enjoy color-coded spreadsheets, post-it notes, and alliteration. 

 

When I’m not at work, I’m either playing with trucks with my son, redecorating every room in my house, eating delicious home-cooked meals from my lovely husband, or snuggling up on the couch with my black lab while watching true crime documentaries. I love desserts of any kind, dogs of any kind, and travel of any kind, though if I had to pick, two favorite vacation destinations are Iceland and Croatia.
