I am an award-winning strategic public relations and marketing communications manager with experience positioning and promoting transportation, industrial and biomedical products into key markets.
Currently, I am on the adjunct faculty at Gonzaga Univerisity teaching a course I designed -- PR for the real world (COML 513).
I worked at Boeing for 13 years, most recently overseeing external communications for the Boeing supply chain and managing the measurement of the company's communications efforts. Prior to that, I managed internal and external communications for Boeing’s employee safety program, “Go for Zero” and crafted employee stories for teams in technical services, Boeing Test & Evaluation, and Boeing Research & Technology.
Before joining Boeing in 2007, I managed public relations accounts for clients in the industrial food industry and handled PR and marketing communications for a manufacturer of biomedical sanitation and testing equipment.
I have a Master's degree in Communication & Leadership at Gonzaga University, a bachelor’s degree in creative writing from Western Washington University, a certificate in integrated marketing from the University of Washington, and am a graduate of the Boeing Leadership Excellence program. I earned my Accreditation in Public Relations in 2006.
