Vice President Corporate Communications

Summary

I am a people-first executive who helps companies of all sizes achieve massive success in any market condition by embracing a human-centered communications philosophy. I take a fresh, efficient, outcomes-first approach to how work should be executed in the digital economy, fostering and creating long-term growth. I channel the energy of a relevant, mission-based narrative, as well as key business priorities, to galvanize high levels of success for organizations. This approach rewrites the rules of what is possible in the areas that matter the most: Loyalty and retention among employees, customers, and stakeholders.
Communication is easier than ever, but more difficult to achieve than ever before. I create strategies to make sense of what can be an intimidating mix of traditional and digital communication platforms. The result is the right mix of emotion, messaging and channels required needed to shape ideas into positive mindsets and support business growth.
