Job title: Director, Communications and Community Relations
Employed by: Berkeley County School District
What I like most about my job: Seeing children in the district succeed because we were able to secure an opportunity that they may not otherwise have had.
I recently joined AFP because: I want to improve and stretch my personal and professional capabilities.
I'm originally from: Fremont, Ohio
My hobbies include: Cheering for my three girls; going to the beach any time of the year – I love the juxtaposition of the serenity and the power of the ocean.
Something my AFP colleagues might not know about me is: I spent the first 18 years of my career working in Fortune 500 Corporate Manufacturing as a marketing, communications, and public relations professional. My industry jump to public education has been exhilarating and challenging in ways I never expected – making this change was the best and scariest thing I could ever have done.
If I had one week to do anything I wanted, I would: Travel on a Mediterranean cruise with stops in Barcelona, Spain and Athens, Greece.
