Key Media Placements

LIGHTBRINGERS!

As my career profile illustrates, I’m well-prepared and qualified to meet and exceed your expectations.

Having overseen PR campaigns for Fortune 500 companies and large-scale events spanning the arts, entertainment, education, and nonprofit industries, I’m accustomed to driving projects forward, keeping all stakeholders informed and delivering value – on time and on budget. I possess a versatile and dynamic skill set and a positive attitude. Leading a conference team. Writing. Producing. Developing. Executing and delivering. You name it, I’m excited to do it.

If given the opportunity, I’ll work tirelessly to deliver similar results for your brand and would also bring the following experience and strengths to your business:

Directed all aspects of marketing and public relations for the U.S. Transcendental Meditation Program; Maharishi Foundation and Maharishi University of Management (MUM) online education program; David Lynch MFA in Film; MA in Sustainability Program; and the 2014 MUM commencement campaign for actor Jim Carrey.

Founded, developed and produced the Creative Edge Film Festival, introducing a vibrant new avenue for independent filmmakers, producers, directors and actors to showcase their talents in the Midwest. Acquired partners and sponsors while also managing all logistics, marketing, and PR – resulting in sold-out festival audiences. Currently co-producing a new feature film set in Iowa, with Sony onboard for post-production work.

Served as a producer/PR & media relations point person for nonprofit environmental organization World Tree, helping build a strong working relationship and implement a smooth and impactful brand integration with the Jimmy Carter Foundation and The Carter Center.

Nonprofit veteran experience and business development on the Operation Warrior Shield Board of Directors. Represented WWII Veteran Captain Jerry Yellin until his death in late 2017 and currently co-producing a limited series (with Brain Frankish of “Field of Dreams” and writer Dan Gordon) based on his remarkable life. Represent Veterans nonprofit Heaven and Earth Oasis for their annual fundraiser. Deep relationships with all branches of the U.S. Military and The White House. Represented Olympic Athlete Anita DeFrantz, who serves as International Olympic Committee VP.

As the Director of Communications, showcased an arts-based nonprofit that developed into an innovative leader on the Arizona culture scene, driving all communication strategies and building partner relationships. Represented the Town Of Carefree, Arizona for their fall and winter events. Served for one year as a member of the Board of Advisors for Valley of The Sun (Desert Foothills) YMCA.

In me, your business would gain a diligent, goal-oriented professional who excels at building strong relationships with clients, team members and the community to lead projects to desired results.
