Senior Partner

Professional Experience

Sustaining growth and reputation in a rapidly evolving environment is no easy feat for any company. I provide expertise, perspective and industry insight to advance the long-term strategic goals of my clients. For more than two decades I’ve helped companies develop integrated marketing campaigns to communicate their brand story, build stronger relationships with their stakeholders and navigate crises. As a result, I’ve served as a strategic advisor and partner to tech, financial, consumer and fintech companies including Avista, Comcast Business, Qorvo, Neustar, Vesta, ilani Casino, FreshRealm, Sortis Holdings and Washington Trust Bank.

How'd you get here?

I’ve always had a passion for stories. I was that kid who read under the covers with a flashlight long after lights-out. So it’s no surprise that I would build a career helping companies tell their best stories. I started my career at C-TRAN, a public transit agency serving Clark County, Washington where I spearheaded campaigns to build community support for public works projects such as light rail and transit centers. From there I went on to work for a full-service creative agency where I led integrated communication programs for B2B brands like Owens Corning, WatchGuard Technologies, Fluke Networks, Louisiana-Pacific, Daimler Trucks and Eaton. Now with FINN Partners, I apply my storytelling skills to B2B and B2C companies in the tech, financial and consumer sectors.
