Where do you work?
I’m a manager of public affairs and strategic communications at Advocacy Solutions, based in Providence.
Why did you decide to go into the PR/Communications field?
I like helping people. I find great pride in being able to listen to a problem and find creative ways to help address and overcome the challenge. I also get to wear a lot of different hats, which is always fun.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
Never to allow myself to feel too comfortable. When we’re thrown out of our comfort zones, that’s when we really discover what we’re capable of.
What is your favorite activity outside of work?
Trail running and hiking with my dog.
If money was no object and you didn’t have to work, what would you be doing?
Working with and to protect abused and neglected animals, from rehabilitation to advocacy work. It’s a passion of mine.
