What is the favorite part of your job?

The people – both our clients and the team! Much of my career experience involves helping people gain access to the knowledge, skills and resources needed to be successful in their work and their personal lives. It’s truly satisfying to serve in that capacity, and I look forward to doing the same in my role with Working Partners®.

What are your personal passions?

I am passionate about family, friends, food and music! And, yes, in that order. I am the youngest of five siblings, and my family is my rock. I have a solid group of close friends, and I just happen to be surrounded by people who cook well. I like to eat, so it’s a perfect match! And, music—well, that’s just the icing on the cake. Music brings me joy!

Share a fun fact about yourself – a quirky tidbit.

Plants bring me joy! There’s a theme here—it’s all about joy! I absolutely love to nurture my plants and watch them thrive. Trees, flowers, vegetables…I like them all. There’s a kind of peaceful energy they exude, and it feeds my soul.

What is your professional background?

I have a master’s degree in journalism from The Ohio State University and 20 years’ experience as a communications professional. I began my career in the media, and in an effort to target projects with an empowerment and educational focus, I transitioned into presentation and spokesperson roles. Most recently, I worked as a division training manager, serving the diverse needs of a major corporation. I am also a member of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA).
