Bio


In addition to my role as Secretary for the Work & Organizations Division of IPPA, I recently left the corporate world to establish a boutique agency specializing in strategic communication and positive organizational development. My agency is called Kairos Communication and I enjoy a terrific partnership with Meaningful Work Lab. 

As I said farewell to my corporate job, one of my super-smart colleagues asked me, "Of all the things you could do now, why this?"  Here was my answer:

I believe it’s possible for people to have work that is meaningful, environments in which they flourish while creating value in the world and I've found a couple of people who are audacious enough to believe that we might just be able to help people and teams work better. 

How I got here: For nearly 20 years, I've helped leaders transform business and improve performance through stakeholder dialogue and by designing innovative customer and employee experiences. Now, I aspire to help people connect with their purpose, foster dialogues to drive growth, develop business strategies, set shared goals and create work groups that are inspiring, energizing and innovative.

Prior to founding Kairos Communication, I was Director, Strategic Leadership and Transformation Communications for The Hershey Company.  There, I  developed communication practices to drive organizational change and set strategy for a wide range of initiatives including senior executive on-boarding, corporate restructuring, acquisitions and divestitures and financial reporting. I learned that in this environment, I was at my best when helping Hershey leaders facilitate effective communications supporting key company initiatives, events, and external announcements as well as to engage with investors, stockholders, customers, and employees.

I discovered a passion for working at the intersection of Communication and Organizational Development during my 12 years at Sprint Corp. where I lead Employee Communications and carved out a role to help corporate employees have a larger impact in consumer-facing initiatives.
