During my career, I’ve evolved from simply communicating to connecting people through communications. We all have a story to tell. With creativity, passion, and strategic thinking, I aim to imagine all the possibilities your story can generate. I start and complete each project with an unmeasurable amount of energy and enthusiasm because I simply love what I do.

I currently work as a health communications specialist at the CDC, but have experience in public relations, marketing, media training and merchandising in agencies and non-profit organizations. My passion for communications motivates me to not only set and meet goals, but to surpass them. I pride myself on being someone you can count on when working on a tight deadline. Clients and coworkers have noted my innate ability to keep calm and deliver results under pressure.

I have a strong passion for the arts and a background in performance art has given me an appreciation for creativity, originality, and the power of storytelling. I know expression can take many forms and this allows me to step out of the box as I create success for clients. I’m always happy to connect with new people and offer assistance on projects.

I received my master’s degree in Integrated Marketing and Management Communication from Florida State University. I am also a proud alumna of the University of South Carolina where I received my bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communications with a focus in Public Relations. Most recently, I completed a Social Media Management certificate at Georgetown University.

When I’m not working – or dancing, which I may occasionally attempt while working— you can find me camped out with my Kindle or a library book, mesmerized by one of my favorite TV shows (hello, goodbye Succession), scrolling through MCU rumors, or rooting on one of my favorite sports teams.
