Senior Vice President
February 2007 — Present
I serve as FleishmanHillard’s senior manager in Ohio. In that role, I identify, develop and assist with new business opportunities for the St. Louis-based firm and provide strategic communications counsel for clients in technology, healthcare, insurance, hospitality and other industries.
I'm a full-time member of the corporate communications team for client AT&T, serving as the project manager for advertising and brand communications and global marketing officer support. I also write speech material and additional communications for the company's C-suite executives and assist in the development of strategic messaging to help promote the company’s products, services and philanthropic efforts.
I formerly served as media spokesman for AT&T in Ohio and six other states. In that role, I worked collaboratively with public relations and marketing teams to promote AT&T products and services through media and grassroots efforts. I managed media relations for the AT&T U-verse TV and iPhone product launches in multiple markets, including Columbus and Cleveland. I was also responsible for crisis communications and delivered timely and accurate responses to media inquiries on a wide range of sensitive issues for AT&T.
In 2010, I served as media relations lead for client Chevrolet in Pennsylvania. I helped plan and execute proactive grassroots, digital and traditional media outreach for Chevrolet in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and other Pennsylvania markets
