An enthusiastic and creative professional with over 16 years of experience in corporate, government, and non-profit member relations and engagement; strategic marketing; support staffing; approachable design ​and event management.

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, creative engagement, strategic marketing, creative direction, trade show development, event planning, and logistics, social media content, newsletter writing and production, publication design, healthcare philanthropy, professional development for fundraising professionals, and executive leadership assistance. I have extensive experience in creating effective business communications strategies, social media, conference planning and execution, corporate governance, and general public affairs and administrative 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 Membership Engagement and Development Manager at the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP)

Where I Work(ed)
I spent 11 years as the Director of Communications for the Advanced Television Systems Committee (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 was  the secretary of the Board of Directors, and in 2008 and 2009, I represented ATSC in the DTV Transition Coalition. 

Before television standards, I spent several years in marketing and communications for private defense contracting corporations. 

Occasionally I tackle an interesting freelance project, be it design or marketing related.
