I'm a veteran PR professional, expert in media relations, crisis communications planning, business development, content creation, e-publishing, podcasting, editing, and writing. I am frequently requested to evaluate a brand or organization's messaging and provide executive counsel on matters concerning communication. I've also produced and hosted podcasts since 2006, including the award-nominated Mysterious Goings On, a show about writing and books that debuted in 2016; and PR After Hours, a business program launched in 2020. I'm a speaker and trainer on numerous subjects, including crisis communication planning, public relations, entrepreneurship, and writing. I have completed the President's Club coursework of the Sandler Training organization, as well as other leadership seminars including LeaderPoint and Disney Management Training Institute. Since 2017, I've been a semi-regular contributor discussing communication on KCTV-5’s morning show. In my spare time, I enjoy writing, kickboxing workouts, obstacle course running, and hiking.
