About Me: 

I am founder and CEO of Communications4Good, providing businesses, early stage companies and organizations with sustainability analysis, communications counseling and program implementation. At Communications4Good, a public relations/branding agency, we are creating a language of goodness that gives business a way to focus, talk about, share, motivate and implement change in the world -- change that values people, respects planetary resources and fosters prosperity. Her trademarked methodology assesses organizational assets, legacy, vision, human capital, business goals and market conditions to unlock the goodness inside of business through the power of language, stories, and communication. Clients include companies in green media, solar, energy management, climate change consulting, green consumer research and sustainable design software industries. With more than 20 years experience at global and boutique agencies, as well as corporate marketing experience at an international technology company, I thrive on bringing communications solutions to Fortune 100 corporations and early stage organizations. Previously a partner at Porter Novelli, I managed the global HP account team in 20 cities/10 countries around the world and served on the Global Citizen Task Force and Pro Bono Initiative.
In addition to client work, she sits on the Santa Cruz Design + Innovation Center Advisory Board, mentors for the California Clean Tech Open and the Entrepreneurs Foundation, is serving on a green building committee and advises a national micro credit non profit.
