I’ve had three distinctive careers. I started in television in Nashville and then moved into higher education, at Middle Tennessee State University (my alma mater) as Assistant Director of Public Relations. I moved to the College of Mass Communications faculty, teaching journalism and public relations. After teaching for two years, I made my final career shift joining Dye Van Mol and Lawrence which became DVL Public Relations and Advertising which then merged to become DVL Seigenthaler, a Finn Partners Company.
The true measure of a man is not how he behaves in moments of comfort and convenience, but how he stands at times of controversy and challenges.– Martin Luther King, Jr.
How'd you get here?
Traveling an exciting, winding road with a strong foundation of faith. I watched and listened – two skills that are often under utilized and under developed. I sought out strong mentors and learned what to do and sometimes, what not to do. I worked hard. Very hard. And I learned to be patient. In fact, I’m still learning how to be patient.
