Service Description

I earned a BA in journalism from Michigan State University and worked as a newspaper reporter before entering corporate communications and public relations as a career. I became interested in the field of foresight a few years back and am currently finishing a Masters in Strategic Foresight at the University of Houston, College of Technology. The processes and tools of futurists have numerous applications for my clients, especially in analyzing trends, evaluating online marketing initiatives and developing strategic communications plans.

"Public relations and marketing communications is changing dramatically thanks to the Internet and associated technologies. It's a brave new world and businesses must accept the fact that reaching customers and prospects is more about connecting and less about content. The best PR pros are finding creative ways to facilitate this exchange between organizations and their stakeholders, encouraging authenticity and open dialog, and pursuing the best mix of Social Media and traditional tactics to secure optimum results."

Affiliations include the International Association of Business Communicators, Houston Chapter and Board of Directors (immediate past-president); and The Association of Professional Futurists, and the World Future Society.
