Get to know our leaders
What is your approach to leadership and mentoring?
When it comes down to it, leadership and mentorship are about much more than having a “type-A” personality. It’s about being compassionate to people from all walks of life.
What do you love most about your work?
It is always changing ─ always evolving ─ and I get front row seats watching the process of a simple idea grow. The diversity of the work that I do ensures that no day is like any other, and I am always focused on supporting the mission, which makes me feel good when the day is done.
What professional advice might you offer to people just getting started in their careers?
It’s so funny when I’m asked to give advice because I am still very much in a season of learning when it comes to marketing in the federal space. But, I would say give your writing enough time to really grow its arm and legs. Give yourself enough time to evolve as a writer. Give your work enough time to reach people and bring you potential opportunities. All of those things ─ a strong platform, voice, and network ─ are crucial to your success.
