Bio
For the last 20 years, communication has been the primary focus of my work. I have been charged with helping to communicate a message through various creative media, live and recorded. Printed word, spoken word, visual media (graphic design and video), music, drama, and many other delivery methods have been employed weekly as we sought to communicate a topic, a concept, or general information to a large audience. I have often been the spokesperson, usually been the on-stage director of programming, and always been the behind-the-scenes coordinator of all materials shared during any given program.

My strengths lie in my leadership abilities, in my experience using new technologies and training others to use them, and in my communication skills. I think quickly on my feet and I excel at problem solving.

I have met weekly with senior management, leadership teams and creative teams to develop strategies to effectively articulate information through given media forms.
I have been responsible for goal implementation, training, vision casting, and maintaining cooperative working relationships.

I have extensive hands-on experience in creating audio and video media for presentation and promotion, in file conversion processes for print and electronic publication, in program development and script-writing, in DVD design and authoring, and in website maintenance and file-posting.
