I believe in the power of words — and a story well told.

I’m a former journalist and an award-winning health communications professional with expertise in pr, marketing, branding, writing/editing, social media and strategic communication. I’m currently the director of communications and marketing for Oregon State University’s College of Public Health and Human Sciences.

My experience ranges from newspapers, to associations, to medical schools, to hospitals and health systems, and to higher education.

I’m adaptable, able to communicate complex concepts and can translate healthcare and higher ed jargon. I bring flexibility, creativity and enthusiasm to every job and enjoy mentoring students to help them grow professionally.

Personally and professionally, I put heart and passion into everything I do, work hard and keep learning. Simply put, I’m a maker, and creating makes me happy.

Do you have a project for me?
