What do you find most beneficial about our chapter? Networking, and I would be remiss not to mention our chapter played a critical role in me earning Accreditation in PR.

What do you like best about being a professional communicator? In the agency environment and Air Force, the situation is fluid and dynamic, but principles of good PR remain the same.

 What’s your favorite part about living and working in Southeastern Wisconsin? Relatively accessible to both coasts. I love that I can fly to DC in less than two hours.

 What’s the best vacation you’ve taken? 10-day trip to Dubai with the family – amazing architecture and culture. Can’t wait to go back – well worth the 15-hour flight.

What’s an interesting fact about you? I belong to two PRSA chapters – the National Capital Chapter in Washington, DC and SE Wisconsin chapter. I spend a lot of time in DC, so sometimes I attend more functions there than here.

Take 5 is a recurring set of questions designed to get to know our chapter’s board members.
