Q. What's your greatest moment in PR so far?
I’m not sure I can think of a specific moment, but seeing your hard work result in a glowing story for your client is always a great moment. That’s one of the things I love most about this industry -- your work generates tangible results.
Q. Who do you love to follow on Twitter and why?
Being a 90s baby, I do love to follow The 90s Life (@The90sLife), because who doesn’t love being reminded of those epic all-denim outfits. Also, the pop-culture junky in me can’t help but follow E! Entertainment (@e_entertainment), to get my daily celebrity fix.
Q. What's the one gadget service you wish someone would come up with?
I would absolutely love if someone created a fitness/health service that examined your body and determined your health goals, and then partnered with a food service (like Blue Apron maybe?) and a fitness service (possibly SoulCycle?) to lay out a schedule for you to reach your personal goals in a certain time period. You could pay a service fee that would cover each partner in the process, and find a fitness regime that is perfect for you! Seems easy enough, right?
Q. Android, iPhone, or other?
iPhone all the way, sorry Android lovers!
Q. What's your favorite thing about living in the Bay Area?
My favorite thing about living in the Bay Area is the endless amount of activities I’m able to dive into. For example, I’m going to a mac and cheese festival this weekend - if that isn’t exciting, I don’t know what is.
Q. What do you love to do when you're not working?
When I’m not working, I love to travel. Getting lost in different countries and immersing myself in foreign cultures is a huge passion of mine, one that I think will never go away. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to 20 countries around the world, my favorite being England and the most interesting being Japan. If you can (and haven’t already), I highly recommend jumping on a plane and getting your travel feet wet - you won’t regret it!

How did you get your start in PR?
I majored in journalism in college, and while I loved it, I quickly realized I like talking way too much to limit myself to just writing. Working in PR gives me the best of both worlds -- I get to write, and I get to communicate with my awesome clients and rockstar coworkers everyday!
What’s your latest/favorite hit so far?
One of the recent hits I’m really excited about was securing a slot for Pebble in O Magazine’s spring trends issue! It was really neat to see Pebble featured in print among several other exciting brands.
What’s a top tip you’d offer to someone aspiring to become a PR rockstar?
Always put yourself in your client’s shoes. Just like any other relationship, empathy is key to fostering a strong and healthy partnership with your client. Understanding their world -- their preferences and requirements -- makes it much easier to share clear recommendations and find new and exciting opportunities for them. At the end of the day, you’ll secure better results, and your client will put more trust in you!
