I have successfully led marketing communications teams, managed corporate reputations and developed strategic programs on both the Agency and Corporate sides of the table. I’ve worked closely with executive management teams to develop and manage C-level communication projects, strategic materials and investor relations support materials. I’ve initiated corporate-wide branding programs that created a corporate identity for a company that didn’t have one. In addition, I adjunct faculty where I taught business writing, editing and design courses at several universities. I'm a member of Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and American Marketing Association. I've volunteered with the Miss America and Miss Wisconsin Organizations, serving on the Miss Wisconsin Organization Board of Directors for 5 years and served as Co-Executive Director for one year.
As to awards, I’ve won some of those too, from PRSA, the Business Marketing Association and the League of American Communication Professionals (LACP).
