Fun Facts

Why do you love what you do?

It is so rewarding when I’ve explained the significance of our industry to a journalist. To see the light bulb moment when she realizes the impact our clients have on everyday lives of everyday people is a lot of fun. To get them as excited about the story as I am, is my fuel!

Why do you love this company?

JSA is truly the best. The best people, the best ideas, the best strategy, the best tools to deliver and the best clients!

Who made the most impact on you?

My 7th grade English teacher, Mrs. Tilley. When she handed out those worksheets with a picture of a storm cloud and the word “brainstorm”, I was first introduced to the formal writing process and realized I could put all those thoughts in my head down on paper and tell a story. I’ve made a career of storytelling.
