How long have you been a part of FPRA? Why did you join?  #myFPRA

One year in FPRA. I had just left the news business and wanted to connect with PR professionals in Orlando. FPRA was recommended to me and I’m so happy to have met so many wonderful people in FPRA.

What was your favorite FPRA event?

Image Awards…a lovely way to honor and award amazing work by local PR teams and businesses.

Tell us about an exciting achievement (personal or professional).

Personal: Skydiving from 18,000 feet over the Space Coast. Professional: Winning best newscast Emmys two years in a row.

What was your first job?

Working at a water park in Kansas City called Oceans of Fun at the kiddie pool watching the kids.

Tell us something people may not know about you.

This is my third time living in Orlando. The news business kept moving me and I kept coming back ☺. Another fun fact: I brought in the new year, 2017, at the Hogmanay Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. I highly recommend everyone do it once. It’s spectacular!
