Management/Strategy Consultant, Writer
With a BA in Journalism and Public Communications and an MBA in Management and strategy, I have the knowledge and skills to assist you with a variety of business projects that require strategic, forward-thinking implementation and follow-through. Appropriate planning can make or break the success of even the best business ideas. Often, that planning requires a careful analysis of your staff, audience, and various forms of available communication.
Communication is my specialty. As early as secondary school I began my journey into public speaking, group communications and leadership. In postsecondary I not only studied communications, but served in student government leadership at the local, statewide, and national levels. This helped transition me into public service with the State of Alaska for more than 6 years. In my role with the state, I helped provide direct one-on-one and group training to Alaskan educators, and assisted in the development of a statewide Network of Alaskan leaders who wished to improve Alaskan postsecondary access and success.
Now I offer these skills to a broader range of clients as a private consultant. I can assist with strategic planning and implementation, communications strategies, social-media strategy and management, event planning and management, and a variety of small business projects.
