I’m an experienced executive with an MBA and proven leadership and creative problem-solving abilities. I’ve received leadership and corporate communications awards, including Communicator of the Year in both the Las Vegas and Salt Lake valleys. I excel at team management, developing efficient processes, organization, and collaboration.

For two years, I was responsible for more than $6 million in public outreach and education programs — including websites, videos, media, partnership coordination, podcasts, and press releases — as part of the state of Utah's COVID-19 pandemic response. The #InUtah campaign received a 2021 Telly Award for Local TV PSA production for Flu Shot Awareness commercials, two 2021 Adobe Government Creativity finalist awards for Multi-Channel Campaign and Graphic Design, and a 2020 Gold Davey Award in Integrated Campaigns for Cause Marketing.

I have senior management experience in entrepreneurial, public/private, and college/university environments. I'm a proficient collaborator, team-builder, and communicator with internal and external constituents. I've produced and organized prominent business and communications conferences across the U.S. (including Gov. Spencer J. Cox's One Utah Summit), managed multi-disciplinary teams, and worked as a college instructor, business trainer, and keynote presenter.
