Service Description

I have worked in diverse industries including education, global conservation, finance, the automotive industry and the defense planning industry. I have also planned executive board meetings, senior level retreats, side events at the annual United Nation's IPCCC congresses, gala dinners, award dinners, international team meetings, symposiums, press conferences, a fashion show, and destination weddings. I've been busy and I loved every minute of it.

I have further experience in communications on several levels, including the design and production of various global warming publications, coordinating press events to launch various publications, conducted market research, developing and implementing a market strategy to include tradeshow participation, direct mail, print and online advertising as well as social media strategies.
