Where and when did your PR career begin?

My PR career began at Regan Communications in Boston, where I interned during my last two years of college. It was a wonderful experience. I worked directly with the vice president on accounts such as Disney on Ice, Planet Fitness, and Reebok, among others.

Who have you worked for in the past?

I started my career in mental health services, working for organizations like McLean Hospital and Advocates Inc. I transitioned into PR/Marketing in 2021 at Aria Marketing and was there for nearly two years. I had the pleasure of working on multiple accounts that focused on AI, and healthcare IT — ranging from small startups to Fortune 500 companies.

Where can you be found when you are not working?

I love hanging out with my friends and family. I also love traveling. My most recent trip was to Lake Como, Italy and it was amazing. Lastly, I am a huge theater geek so going on trips to NYC to see Broadway shows is my favorite (albeit expensive) pastime.

If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring 3 things, what would they be?

  3. A radio
