PLEASE CONTACT ME WHEN:
You want to partner with East Tennessee Foundation or learn more about us! I’m always happy to build relationships and share the important work we’re doing across the 25-county region we serve and beyond.

ON A TYPICAL WORKDAY I’LL BE:
As a people-person and public relations professional, I’m often telling our story, whether that’s in-person, by partnering with the media, or creating communications to highlight our philanthropic leadership.

I CHOSE THIS WORK BECAUSE:
East Tennessee Foundation (ETF) is driving stronger communities and bettering lives. As a communicator, my job is to shine light on what’s happening. Illuminating ETF is a joy when everything we do is for good.

MORE ABOUT ME:
Along with a master’s degree in public relations, I bring the Foundation more than 7 years of communications experience across public, private, and nonprofit sectors. My diverse career has allowed me to connect with and serve the public through a variety of community-focused endeavors. Before joining East Tennessee Foundation, I supported the Corporate Communications and Community Relations team at Piedmont Lithium and strengthened academics, enrollment, and advancement at Tennessee Wesleyan University. I first fell in love with East Tennessee when I started my local career as a reporter for The Daily Post-Athenian – and I’m honored to echo the Foundation’s enrichment of communities throughout our beautiful region.
