Sacramento California United States
Communications is my passion, one that I'm lucky enough to pursue in a variety of avenues as a consultant and volunteer. I spent the first 19 years of my career in one company (SAIC and Leidos [formerly SAIC]) and have assumed progressive responsibility in communications over that time, moving from an administrative assistant to a communications director. I've surfed the entire comms wave, from internal to external and everything in between. While my experience runs deep across the spectrum, my passion is internal comms - the people side of things. Businesses don't run themselves; people do. Increasing employee engagement allows people to perform their best and effective communications is critical to making that happen.
Today, as a self-employed communications consultant, I'm able to apply my storied expertise and skills in an impactful way to the incredible clients I support. Outside of work, I'm fortunate to be able to leverage my skills to some amazing, local non-profits, including the Orangevale Food Bank, El Dorado Musical Theatre, and Green Oaks Fundamental Elementary - organizations that are important to me, my family and our community.
