What do you enjoy most about your job? I’m fortunate to work with an amazing team of intelligent, dedicated and mission-driven people. I’ve been here only a short time, but I’ve learned so much. Every day is different and the work has real purpose, which is something I’ve never experienced before.
Why PR? What brought you to the field? My background is in marketing and communications and PR tends to fall under that realm. Over the years, I’ve taken on more and more PR responsibilities. It’s always been an area of interest for me, but now I’m in a position where I need to think about PR differently and I’m looking forward to learning as much as I can.
If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose and why? Oh, there are so many! It would be impossible to choose one, but I’m most fascinated by women who ignored traditional societal expectations and dedicated their lives to women’s rights causes, especially during times when women really didn’t have a voice. Women like Susan B. Anthony, Margaret Sanger, and Betty Friedan are a few good examples. Even today, I see disparities in the workplace and I often wonder what women stronger than me would do about it.
