About me

I lead Worldwide Communications for Ogilvy -- driving external and internal communications as well as serving as a key spokesperson. I will also continue to lead global media relations via the Ogilvy Media Influence network -- working with our clients across the company.

My expertise is focused on nation branding, CEO and corporate positioning, crisis communications and corporate social responsibility.

Currently, serve as client lead for a number of key accounts including Citizens Financial Group, Chemours and Brand USA.

During my tenure, have led the agency's multi award-winning global relationships with the governments of Mexico, Colombia and the USA - attaining record tourism and FDI. Of note, the team and I also handled the Citizens Financial Group IPO (largest financial services IPO in U.S. history), launched UN Women's HeForShe program, and introduced Nationwide's Make Safe Happen program at the 2015 Super Bowl.

In 2013, we brokered a groundbreaking relationship between Ogilvy and Fast Company and most recently brokered an alliance between Ogilvy and Good Scout.
