Communications to Advance Great Ideas
2016-07-29 19.32.29.jpg

Work hard for good causes, think deeply, solve problems, be bold, create, foster change.


That's what I love to do.

I love to advance great ideas. 

Across more than 25 years in leadership roles at private and public institutions in the U.S. and Europe, I have become a specialist in institutional planning, communications strategies, admissions and campaign communications, team-building, and perceptions research that leads to meaningful return on investment.

As the top communications executive at Amherst College, Bucknell University, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, Science Foundation Ireland, and the University of South Carolina, I built transformative strategic communications operations. From branding overhauls to website redesigns, my teams and I re-shaped how these institutions connected with their audiences.

I've overseen communications for $500 million fundraising campaigns, developed admissions marketing that helped boost applications by nearly 40% in one year, and written for everyone from European Union scientists to Ireland's Deputy Prime Minister to numerous college presidents.

I am also an endless optimist, exemplified by my being a fan of Cleveland’s professional teams going back 30 years.

I will work with you to learn what distinguishes your mission and how to separate it from the crowd.
