Currently I work as a Senior Account Executive at Edelman's San Francisco office. I am on the Corporate + Financial Communications team, working on the PayPal and Charles Schwab accounts. My focus is executive visibility, with additional work in retail services, earnings and general corporate communications.
Before Edelman, I worked at BackBay Communications in Boston. BackBay is a strategic branding, marketing and public relations firm focused on the financial services sector, including private equity, investment management and financial technology. Our services included branding, website design, content marketing, events, marketing materials, public relations and advertising. I focused on research, brand development projects and integrated marketing campaigns.
My tasks are uniquely built around my skill set. I am extremely organized, therefore I run overall project management for many of my clients. My curiosity and thirst for knowledge are great companions for deep dives into research and the "Most Friendly" superlative title I received in middle school has helped me with pitching the media and conference organizers.
At BackBay I worked with such clients as: SS&C Technologies, Eagle Investment Systems, TD Bank, Murray Devine, iQuantifi, Harvard Business School, Quad-C Management, TA Associates, J.W. Childs Associates, Shore Capital, Pamlico Capital, Evanston Capital Management and more.
Before joining BackBay in 2012, I was a Service Manager at a garage door company in Fremont, CA for four years. I refined my customer service skills and learned a lot about troubleshooting stubborn garage door openers (give me a call if you can't get your remote to work!).
During college I interned at two San Diego public relations agencies, learning the ropes and performing basic office duties. LEWIS introduced me to practical public relations, and BERKMAN is where I realized the extent of what PR practitioners took care of (I helped coordinate the opening gala of a new luxury rug store in downtown San Diego - that was pretty neat). I majored in Communications, with an emphasis in Public Relations at San Diego State University, participating in their nationally recognized PR program.
I grew up in Livermore, CA, a small town in the east bay area. Even though my family doesn't live there anymore, it will always feel like home.
I enjoy trivia, watching movies, going to the beach, stand up comedy, going to Sharks games, live music, and reading. I'm also pretty decent at dodgeball.
