Joined Bianchi PR:

2004

Education:

Experience:

I’ve had lots of really great … and different … experiences during my time at Bianchi. The majority of my work has dealt with business to business media relations for a variety of automotive (Cooper Standard, Johnson Controls, PPG, Freudenberg-NOK / Simrit), consulting (Munro & Associates, MVP Collaborative), legal (Brooks Kushman, Vercruysse Murray & Calzone) and trade groups (Steel Market Development Institute, Motor Vehicle Lighting Council). I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with some great client contacts who really raise the bar in what they’re working to achieve.

What I like about Bianchi PR:

Our great team and family-oriented culture! I’m so fortunate to be able to work alongside my friends every day. Over the past 10 years, we’ve all grown together as our industry has evolved and shared some great successes.

Favorite PR Success:

Extreme Home Makeover: Home Edition where I worked in a bean field for a week. It was such a great experience: thinking on your feet; the great communal feeling of helping a family in need; and an awesome learning experience.

My role here:

I’m an account supervisor for four active accounts. I strive to help my clients with long-term planning and strategy, serve as a sounding board for new ideas, counsel on pretty much anything, as well as assist with day-to-day “hot” projects that keep our clients so busy. My goal is to serve as a trusted partner that our clients can count on for any of their communication needs.

For fun I:

Spend time with my husband (Jason) and twins (Sophia and Logan); travel (my husband and I try to visit one new county each year); and read.

People would be surprised to learn that I:

Rode horses competitively in the equestrian sport of dressage while growing up. As a result, I can hitch a truck and trailer in minutes!
