I Am…

… a communicator…
… a creative…
… a problem solver…
… a pro.

Growing up in rural south Georgia, the daughter of a biology teacher and an engineer, somehow I went a completely different way — out of my small town, first to Mercer University, where I studied art, communications and photography; then to the Triangle area of North Carolina, where I’ve grown an established career as a PR specialist and creative designer.

Along the way I designed logos for nonprofits and small businesses; I spoke for elected leaders and government organizations; I was the voice behind all of the robo-calls for a local school system; I started my own wine blog; I designed newsletters, websites and marketing collateral for a whole host of enterprises.

I also got married, divorced, remarried, had a couple of dogs, a kid, two houses and a few cars. Traveled the country and the world, drank a lot of wine, remodeled my kitchen and cooked some crazy-good food in it. i’m still doing those last things (except for the remodeling part), with my teenage son, my sommelier/restaurateur husband, and our fluffy black dog.

 If you’re interested in a list of roles I’ve filled — from assistant creative director at a university to press secretary for a governor — my full resume is on LinkedIn.
