Q & A

What are you most proud of in your career?
Learning how much there’s still left to learn.

Name one thing most people don’t know about you.
I founded and edited one of the first food blogs in Buffalo, NY long before foodie was a hashtag.

How would your mother describe you?
She said “smart, kind and loving” – I’ll happily go with that!

What are your greatest strengths as a communications practitioner?
I love going all-in on my clients’ businesses – developing a native understanding of their products and genuinely knowing what makes their own clients tick.

What is your favorite food?
Żurek and pyzy are high on the very long list.

Describe your perfect client.
One that treats our team like an extension of their own and allows us to develop long-term relationships with spokespeople. Bonus points if the executive team understands the power of good communications, so we can spend our time doing instead of rehashing. I’m lucky to have many clients like this.

What three hobbies or activities do you enjoy most?
Playing tennis, playing piano and hiking.

What’s your favorite part of the workday?
Late afternoon, when the most urgent things have been taken care of and you have more space to ruminate on the bigger picture.

Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
I don’t watch enough movies to know how to answer this question – open to thoughts!

What is your favorite quote?
“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”
– Kurt Vonnegut
