I am a senior-level communications manager with expertise in technology, marketing and training. I help teams and companies find and tell their story. I make requirements into reality through effective strategy and team management.
I have been fascinated with technology since the day a TRS-80 computer showed up in my homeroom and I started teaching myself BASIC to make the computer say “Hello” to me. I became a member of the Youth Advisory Board for ENTER magazine to share communications with other grade-school kids about using home computers. Ever since, I’ve been eagerly learning how to unpack and distill even the most daunting technologies and changes into information that empowers audiences to take action.
During my career, I have managed online communities, social media and print communication; overseen product marketing portfolios with $750,000 annual revenue; led communication strategies for $30 million average annual sales and executive-level Fortune 500 initiatives; and spoken in dozens of companies, including CNN, Microsoft, IBM and People Magazine, about building their online presence.
I'm also a 20-year volunteer at the Columbus Zoo, including serving on the docent board as a chair of the Communications and Docent Manual committees.
