I am an architect of stories that intertwine the vision, mission, outcomes, and people of organizations to enhance brands and interpersonal relationships. My goal is to create greater consumer or community engagement with organizations. I connect with media outlets and the general public through public relations communication, event planning and coordination, and people management. I have a passion for arranging efforts to collectively make a difference.
