About Us

What Qualifies Me to Tell Your Story?

With almost two decades of public relations experience, I have helped companies open their doors and build their brand, while ensuring a positive reputation. I’ve guided major companies through crisis situations leading their crisis communications strategy, ensuring brand loyalty, and repairing reputations. I’ve also led some of the biggest brands in the world by creating and executing their public relations strategy and marketing efforts.

My professional experience includes work with NIPSCO, The Professional Convention Management Association, OneParish (A Catholic App.), and De Rigo Rem, one of the largest eyewear manufacturers in the world, supporting some of the largest fashion brands globally. I have also guided the website Anglotopia.net growing it into the largest Anglophile website in the world.

Additionally, I earned my undergraduate degree in communications from Purdue (Boiler UP!) I also hold a master’s degree in Global Strategic Communications from the Brian Lamb School of Communication at Purdue. I am a member of the Public Relations Society of America and I sit on the board of directors of the Chicago chapter of PRSA. I am also a registered member of the Commission on Public Relations Education Research. I have also served on the communication committee for the Optical Women’s Association and was a 2023 winner of the Executive Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship winner from the National Vision Council.

While my professional experience, is relevant, what sets South Shore PR apart is that our agency is located in Northwest Indiana, serving the community where I was raised and choose to live. As a life-long Northwest Indiana resident, and honorary Chicagoan, I understand the nuances of the region, and what makes this area so special.
