Journalism ● Public Relations ● Marketing Communications
I have built a career on being a professional chameleon, always willing to learn and gather experience in areas that make me a better or more creative communicator. This has sometimes meant taking chances to expand my knowledge base by moving into areas where I am a novice, but it has always been worth it.
In addition to my early career with news media outlets, I have worked as a Public Information Officer for the second largest county (by territory) in the U.S., and as a Media Specialist for the governing Board of Commissioners in the third-most-populous county in Michigan.
I have also worked on a full-time and freelance basis in the arts and entertainment, manufacturing and the personal growth industries to help small business owners and artists with communication needs ranging from public relations, book writing/editing, branding and social media, to media coaching, media relations and content creation.
I am currently located in Los Angeles, where I work for UCLA and spend my free time volunteering with the dog team at No-Kill Los Angeles. For a complete resume, pleasecontact me.
