Professionally, I lead a communications and public affairs team at UC Irvine, where my role spans across the campus and health affairs enterprise. My past experience includes having led an innovative and award winning communications team as the chief communications officer at UC Santa Cruz.
I specialize in high-level communications and marketing strategy including audience experience, social media engagement, creative storytelling, multi-channel content development, information design and architecture, and long-term business planning with an eye on efficiency. Additionally, I have significant experience in issues and crisis communications management, particularly in areas related to reputation and community management.
In my personal time, I can be found exploring the local arts, food, and culture scenes or conducting culinary experiments in the Main kitchen. I also like to indulge in all things tech, design, and business. I get my breath of fresh air from traveling, outdoor adventures, and photography.
