What awards/recognition do you value most?
Awards are great, and it’s always fun to win as a team, but what I value most is earning the respect of my team members.
What do you find most fulfilling about your work?
Sharing stories that impact people’s lives… and helping clients figure out how to tell them. I also love getting to work with a variety of companies. No two clients are the same and getting to know different industries keeps you on your toes.
What traits help you succeed?
Good storytellers have to be good listeners, so I like to think I’m a good listener.
How do you hold it together when things get stressful?
I take a few deep breaths, step back to look at the big picture, and focus on what needs to get done.
How have your roots contributed to who you are today?
I’m from Connecticut, but I lived and worked in Boston for 10+ years in technology communications for some amazing agencies. I swore I would never move back, but here I am. I feel so fortunate to have come full circle and to have landed at Adams & Knight!
What activities do you enjoy?
Cooking/baking, antiquing, visiting museums, decorating and fixing up our 1750s house, dancing
Your favorite motto, quote, saying?
