I have a passion for helping people succeed. My focus is on you, the client, whether it’s communicating to an audience about your products and services, or helping you become an effective communicator through your interpersonal interactions. There’s nothing more satisfying than to bring people together for the right event or interview, find a new way to get across an idea, or help someone realize a goal.
I grew up in Ephrata, in Eastern Washington, and graduated with honors from Washington State University with a BA in Communications – Journalism. In a varied career as a TV news reporter, anchor and producer, I have covered everything from the downfall of General Manuel Noriega in Panama with U.S. Army troops — to the Loma Prieta Earthquake near San Francisco — to the WTO riots in Seattle. I’ve jumped out of planes, learned to scuba dive, flown with the Blue Angels, and danced with the Seattle Mariners’ groundskeepers – all in search of a great story.
What I do
Since leaving the anchor desk and TV news in 2009, I’ve had the opportunity to manage my own PR firm, be a partner in a professional development company, give keynote speeches, obtain my professional coaching certification, serve on several non-profit boards, and continue to be a life-long learner. I’m inspired by the people I work with. Whether it’s through public relations and marketing strategy, or executive leadership and transition coaching, I’m pleased to help you reach your personal and professional goals.
