As a former marketing executive and Senior Vice President of a 200+ person AEC firm, my responsibilities included strategic planning and direction of business development, corporate communications and marketing initiatives.
Today, I use that knowledge, experience and understanding of the AEC industry to develop teaming strategies, build partnerships, provide marketing assistance and deliver long-range, big-picture initiatives for my clients.
I received my B.S. in Business Communications from Stevenson University and I am a Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM). I am also a graduate of the ACEC/MD Leadership Program and the Dale Carnegie "Leadership Training for Managers" program.
I have been an active member of the Society of Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) throughout my career, previously serving the Maryland chapter as president as well as Sponsorship and CPSM chairs. I currently serve on the Maryland Chapter’s Senior Advisory Council and as a mentor for the mentoring program. From 2015-2017, I developed, facilitated and chaired the Chapter’s Senior Advisory Council Leadership roundtables for senior-level marketers. At a regional level, I currently serve as the Sponsorship Chair for the 2018 SMPS Northeast Regional Conference (NERC) and I have been recently named as co-chair for the 2019 SMPS NERC. From 2015-2017, I served on the national SMPS Certification Committee.
I also volunteer my time as the Secretary for the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Baltimore Post and I am a committee member on both the national Small Business Council and Environmental committees.
For the past 15+ years, I have presented business development, marketing and procurement process fundamentals to industry professionals on behalf of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), SAME, the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), SMPS and the Maryland Society of Surveyors.
