What is your favorite thing to do on a Sunday?
I love visiting the beach with my family, going for runs and doing Pilates, but mostly on Sundays I am running around after my gorgeous three-year-old toddler.
What was the last thing you bought?
I recently purchased airplane tickets to Colorado to visit my lovely In-laws and some really close friends. Colorado has a special place in my heart – I love the mountains and the culture the state has to offer.
When you were a kid what did you want to be when you were older?
When I was ten I was dead-set on being a hairdresser … given that I hardly ever look after my hair it’s probably a good thing I didn’t pursue that field.
Weirdest communications story?
I took on a special project helping a public figure launch a French cookbook. Halfway through the public launch, with all the dates set, I realized that the book had no measurements, only ingredients listed for the recipes. Needless to say, the cookbook did not sell well!
But my favorite memory from KCD PR is when Kevin volunteered to do the voice-overs for a client video and he locked himself away in the office closet.
And finally, what do you like the most about working at KCD PR?
I love the entrepreneurial and tenacious spirit we all bring to work every day. I am inspired by the happiness and positivity of the team, for example Kelly is fantastic with clients and project management. She also can overcome any kind of technical issue like a pro! Morgan joins dotted lines other people don’t see – she has been brilliant at securing media opportunities. Kevin truly wants us to enjoy what we do and have fun along the way. He is also a brilliant strategist and an expert on all things financial services.
