Give a brief explanation of your job.
I’m the main point of contact for the agency for the media and general public, often referred to as the agency spokesperson. My particular focus is on construction projects as well as future projects that are in the planning and design stage. I also spend time marketing E-PASS, the agency’s electronic transponder (save time and money at GetEPASS.com!). What I love about my job is I get to work with great people and that no two days are alike.
How long have you been a member of FPRA and why did you join?
I joined in 2018 – I’m a newbie to FPRA. Why? Because Jeff Grainger encouraged me to join! Honestly, it was not a tough sell. I saw the value in joining FPRA and I was certain that I would gain both personally and professionally from the experience.
What has been your favorite FPRA event so far?
Media Mash Up, and as a bonus I get the honor and responsibility of helping to organize this year’s Media Mash Up event.
Tell us about an exciting achievement (personal or professional).
I am an avid runner and will be competing (and hopefully COMPLETING) my 13th ½ marathon. That said, 13.1 miles is plenty for me, I have no desire to double the distance by doing a full marathon – that’s just crazy.
What was your first job?
Member Services Coordinator with the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives
When I left my job at the PA State House of Representatives, I took off and traveled the U.S. and Mexico by myself for two months before relocating to Washington D.C. It was a great adventure with lasting memories.
