Tell us a little bit about your background before joining The Key team.Prior to joining The Key, I worked as the communications manager for the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles where I managed crisis communications and the organization’s shift from reactive to proactive media outreach. Prior to NCDMV, I worked at a few different communications agencies. At each agency, I led the strategy and execution of communications efforts for global client partners.

I also spent the beginning of my career working in the education and nonprofit space in D.C.
