My passion is brand development. Graduating from Penn State in May, 2012 I moved back to my hometown just outside of Philly, looking to make a difference in the community I love so much. Currently, I am working for a business development non-profit, the Manayunk Development Corporation, focusing on public relations and media relations in an event-driven environment to promote the district of Manayunk. I work with a small team to plan, implement and promote around 12 major events throughout the year, as well as more than 100 small businesses located in this restaurant and retail driven district. Our events and promotions focus on drawing large crowds to Manayunk and developing a strong reputation for the district to encourage returning visitors.
Outside of my profession, I enjoy discovering all that the amazing city of Philadelphia has to offer. Going to Philadelphia sporting events, trying new restaurants, attending festivals and traveling to the Jersey Shore.
