What made you go into PR/what do you love about it?
I fell into PR by accident through work on political campaigns and government in Oregon. I love people so PR has been a natural fit for me, but there is nothing like seeing your work result in an article or even on TV.
What do you do on weekends?
I have a great group of friends so you will find me with them spending time outdoors, going to movies/plays/concerts/etc., or eating at one of SFs amazing restaurants. If I'm not with friends, you can find me reading in a café or at the gym.
What are some of your favorite things?
Favorites have always been a challenge for me. I love life and many things including family, friends, TV, movies, running, travel, and food.

What made you go into PR?
While in college, I wanted to gain both a communications and business perspective within my major and minor, so I decided to study both PR and Marketing. I enjoy the relationship-building side of PR. I am extremely passionate about how this industry provides you with the tools to connect with a variety of audiences through a multitude of channels in order to increase a client’s presence and voice within its respective industry. I love collaborating on a team to act as a brand’s ambassador and help it to achieve measurable success!
What made you select PAN? Initial impressions so far?
First and foremost, PAN stood out to me because of the fantastic agency culture.

I am also very excited to dive into tech public relations. PAN’s continued success and superb reputation in the industry are extremely attractive attributes that I am so excited to become a part of.

Where can we find you on the weekends?
In the summer, you can normally catch me by the beach or the Charles during the day, and trying out new restaurants and pubs in the city at night! On Sunday’s in the fall and winter you’ll most likely find me at Gillette Stadium or downtown cheering on the Patriots!
