In A Nutshell

I listen, I organize, I synthesize, I visualize, I actualize.

What I Do
My specialties include trade association and non-profit member relations and communications, member recruitment and retention, creative direction, conference and event development, publication design, community development, and executive leadership governance. I have extensive experience in creating effective business communications strategies, social media platforms, and public affairs support. 

I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from James Madison University. I am a commissioned notary public for the Commonwealth of Virginia. I know how put Adobe Creative Cloud to good use, and I am a proud member of the Tech Lady Mafia.  

Where I Work
I am the Manager of Membership Engagement and Development for the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy. (If you are a fundraising pro, when can we meet for coffee?)

Where I Worked
Previously, I was the Director of Communications for the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC). At ATSC I was responsible for member communications and outreach, educational seminar programming, annual meeting and trade show direction, technical demonstrations, sponsorship coordination, social media management, and other promotional activities in the digital television industry. I served as the secretary of the Board of Directors. In 2008 and 2009, I represented ATSC in the DTV Transition Coalition.
