I am from South Charleston, OH. I graduated from ONU in 2005 with a B.A. in Journalism and a B.A. in Music and a Theatre Minor. I work in New York City for Porter Novelli public relations in the Brand Marketing group, where I have been for six years. My current clients include Welch’s, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Primo Water, Snapfish by HP and Hewlett-Packard. I have also worked with a variety of clients including Rio Tinto Diamonds, Mercedes-Benz, British Airways, Gillette, Timberland and Procter & Gamble, helping manage client programs, create award-winning events, and devise creative solutions to client challenges, specifically related to media and social media engagements.
A fashion enthusiast, I am involved as a contributing blogger for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and the continuing studies program at F.I.T., as well as an active choral/opera singer in New York City, performing at leading venues including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. I also hosts my own blog, Mojitos & Florentine, chronicling my culinary adventures around New York City.
