My background

Prior to starting my own company in 2011, I rejoined Tricom Associates in 2005 to manage clients focused on education and environmental issues. In addition to strategic direction, I provided all levels of media services including messaging, press release writing, media pitching, social media outreach, development of written and web-based materials and spokesperson training. I also served as the social media expert for the firm, providing advice and guidance on incorporating social media into all clients’ communication plans and campaigns. I previously worked at Tricom from 1995-1997.

I was the director of outreach and media relations for Child Trends, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research center where I managed outreach to the media, Congress, the Administration and state and local policymakers. During my four years with Child Trends, I established the organization as a national source for the media and policymakers looking for unbiased data and trends on American children. Working closely with researchers, I helped translate social science research for media, policymakers and the public, and trained researchers to do the same.

I also served as an account supervisor at The Rogers Group (now Rogers Rudder Finn) in Los Angeles, providing day-to-day media relations counsel, as well as long-term messaging and media and event planning, for the California Children and Families Commission (First 5 California) and their 58 county commissions.

I have an M.A. in political management from The George Washington University, and a B.A in political science and a certificate in political communications from Ohio University.
