    What's your proudest career accomplishment or milestone in the last year? Finishing my third semester of teaching a social (media) listening class in our Advertising, Public Relations and Media Design program, and getting the opportunity to start the third chapter of my overall career that combines chapter 1 (business intelligence) and chapter 2 (social media management) into social intelligence and insights that will help inform my colleagues in PR, marketing, management and beyond.

    What are you looking to get out of PRSA? I’m excited to learn from, and share with, PRSA members - especially around creating opportunities through new connections like PR and social intelligence.

    Who's your dream dinner party guest (living or dead), and why? Neil Peart of Rush, who unfortunately passed away too soon earlier this year. One, music is a very important part of my life, and Rush is one of my all-time favorite bands. Two, he is the G.O.A.T drummer. And most importantly, he was a master of creating the patterns (rhythm) that enabled his bandmates to shine. When all their talent and capabilities were brought together, they created something wonderful that did not previously exist. That’s what I hope to achieve in my work around social intelligence.
