Inside The Mind Of...

  • What does "A Brighter Way" mean to you? To me, ""A Brighter Way"" means ""possibility"" and the ability to look beyond the challenge and find a better solution - an innovative solution.
  • What's your favorite aspect of your job? I love that I have the opportunity to educate our clients, future clients, and the general public on issues that resonate with them on a professional level.
  • What do you consider is your ""brightest"" quality? I think my brightest quality is my ability to see the world differently. When I am confronted with a problem, I don't always accept that the obvious answer is the best answer; I choose to take the path less taken in an effort to take my work to the next level. Every challenge is an opportunity for growth and if we don't embrace the opportunity to think outside the box, we could be denying ourselves of the next big idea.

Just For Fun:

  • What did 10-year-old you want to be when you grew up? At 10-years-old, I wanted to be on stage - either as an actress or a singer.
  • What was your first job? My first job was for ABC Auto Body, where I cleaned offices and the shops.
  • What is one trait you possess that you inherited from your mother or father? I inherited my dedication and persistence from my mother and I hope to pass these qualities on to my own girls. They can be anything they want to be, and with dedication and persistence, anything is possible.
I am an innovative marketing and PR professional with more than 10 years of experience.
