I’m an Army Brat so we moved around a great deal in my formative years. Born in Germany, I had stints in Oklahoma, northern and southern Louisiana, Georgia and Alabama, including time on Dauphin Island. From kindergarten through undergrad, I attended 13 different schools. Then I kept moving as a young adult with time spent in Scotland and New York. To be honest I learned to adapt quickly and get along with many different groups of people. It’s served me well working in PR, to say the least.
This is a bit unconventional, but I’d have to say Aaron Sorkin. I dream of a world where people converse in Sorkin-esque vocabulary and speed. Language is a powerful tool for making connections and how you deliver your message is often as important as the words themselves. I try and keep that in mind when working with clients in my job every day.
My dream job originally was to be a wildlife photographer and journalist for National Geographic. I have an extreme love of the natural world and the plight of animals is a cause near and dear to my heart. I’d love to use my talents to help further that cause in the future (and to visit the Serengeti for a month).
Does the ability to not push the snooze button on my morning alarm four times count?
