My favorite projects have been related to health care and education. I have experienced inordinate motivation while working with nonprofit clients, who have a tremendous mission and opportunity to make the world better. Most recently I helped lead a team through Orlando's tragic response to the Pulse Shootings in June 2016.
I'm the current General Manager for Edelman's Orlando office. I lead a team of 14 in the Orlando office and share resources across Edelman's global network to bring the best of Edelman to clients throughout Florida. I'm responsible for new business development, portfolio management, fostering leadership with Edelman U.S. leaders, maintaining an Edelman culture in a small office environment, and leading a team that produces best-in-class work for clients.

I’m a seasoned communications professional always looking for a challenge. I’m ready to help others achieve their career goals and accomplish things they never thought possible. I enjoy contributing my skills to help make my community better. I’ve learned to enjoy ‘the moment’ of my career — looking back fondly on my accomplishments and trusting the future will offer new exciting opportunities.
