What was attractive about working at Rhodes?
I was compelled by the Rhodes Vision of graduating students with the ability to translate academic study and personal concern into effective leadership and action in their communities and the world. In the words of former Bonner Foundation President Wayne Meisel, I’m passionate about Rhodes’ interest in moving from a world where we work to feed the poor to a world where soup kitchens are not necessary because we’ve defeated hunger.
What do you hope to accomplish as community service coordinator?
Through the Kinney Program (the college’s campus-wide service-based learning umbrella), I hope to unite students working on a similar issue (e.g., hunger and homelessness or hospitals and health care) for regular meetings and the development of an issue-based action plan to guide current and future community engagement efforts. My hope is that Rhodes students graduate with a deep connection to the Memphis community.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments?
When I founded Revolutions Community Bicycle Shop in June of 2002, I never thought there would be a day when I worked in the shop and people would introduce themselves and say, “Hi, I’m so and so. Who are you?” To me, Revolutions now stands as a Memphis institution outside of any direct connection to me.
What do you most enjoy about your work?
I enjoy wrangling with the issues. I enjoy debating the merits of particular courses of action or root causes for the problems that surround us, and I feel fortunate to have the chance to listen to brilliant insight from the people I meet every day. I love building community with people through meaningful work, and I enjoy being with people who hope to move our city and this world from potential to reality.

Why did you pursue a career in marketing and public relations?
I like to talk, write, listen and be nice to people. I figured if I could do that for an organization that I admire and respect, then I would never dread going to work and I would never have to lie.
What drew you to Playhouse on the Square?
I am excited about the growth I have seen at Playhouse on the Square. Our arts community has such amazing talent that we could rival other cities that are a draw in terms of arts and culture. That is possible here and I want to be part of the movement that makes that happen.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments?
So far, getting this job. The first job in your field is always the hardest to get. This one combines all of my interests. I really lucked out. I couldn’t ask for a better fit.

Hometown: Laurel, Miss.

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.
