More About You
Joining RP is a career change for me! Shifting gears from working in higher education to joining a strategic communications agency is thrilling. I am most excited about all the learning I will be doing as an Associate with RP: from learning from my new team to the diverse projects I will support and everything in between.
If you could have dinner with a famous person (past or present) who would it be and why?
I would be honored to have dinner with Michelle Obama. She inspired me so much as First Lady, and even more so after reading her book Becoming and learning more about her upbringing, her approach to motherhood, and the challenges she is still working to overcome.
Besides the standard necessities (phone, wallet, keys, etc.), what’s something you never leave home without?
I never leave home without something to knit or crochet! Whether it is a sweater I am working on for myself, or a gift for a loved one, I can never leave home without yarn and a hook or needles.
