Favorite quote: My show choir director in high school had a saying, “Cope and adjust.” It’s kind of become a mantra over the years. If something goes awry, you just deal with it and move on.
Who has had the greatest influence on you? My grandmother (Mammaw) was a huge influence on my love of music. She introduced me to the piano and encouraged my talents. She also was a genuinely sweet and loving person, and I think she helped shape who I am today.
Why did you pursue a career in public relations? It was the degree that required the least amount of math courses! In all seriousness, I knew I loved writing, meeting and talking to new people, and it seemed like a perfect career for my personality.
What drew you to Obsidian? I had been working in the not-for-profit realm for nearly five years – mostly focused on fundraising – when an e-mail came through my inbox about an open position as an account executive at Obsidian. The opportunity to go back to my PR roots and work for a growing firm sounded like an appealing challenge and is a decision I am happy to have made.
What will your new role at Obsidian entail? I’ll be managing our account team of nine people by providing strategic council on client initiatives, editing writing projects, overseeing day-to-day operations, finding new talent and planning professional development activities.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments? I’m lucky to work in a field where I get to see the fruits of my labor on a daily basis through successful publicity initiatives for our clients. I think I would consider my time so far at Obsidian to be one filled with accomplishment that is tangible and fulfilling.
