Over the course of my 35-year career as a professional communications strategist, I have managed and led every aspect of corporate communications, having served in leadership roles with several large organizations spanning multiple industries and interests.
In 2020, I was named a ‘Top Woman in Communications’ in the Visionary category by Ragan Communications/PR Daily in the inaugural year of the award. In 2014, I was one of 24 women recognized as a “Great Woman of Texas” by the Fort Worth Business Press. Over the course of my career, my work has been recognized for marketing and communications excellence with more than 350 regional, national and international awards.
With our two children grown, successful, and likely not boomeranging home, my husband and I travel as frequently as possible, though it means leaving behind our two feisty German Shepherd Dogs and our very bossy cat.
I'm known for many things, but my favorite claim to fame is the title, "Emu Whisperer." Cool story!
