Please briefly describe your work experience.

I’ve always been involved with marketing, in some capacity.  I started off my career, in advertising sales, selling for the Chicago Sun-Times, and then ESPN/ABC.  In 2009, my mom and I started KBK Communications, which provides marketing services to the healthcare industry.

How long have you been in the healthcare industry?

Since 2009, but I’ve always been around PWH for a long time, as my mom has been involved since its inception.

How long have you been evolved with PWH?

See answer above....since I was in college :)!

What do you think the benefits of PWH are? How have you benefited from being involved?

Besides the friendships (which I love), I’ve learned a lot about leading a team.  I’m also a part of the new Mentoring program, and I’m learning a TON from my mentor.

If you had to give someone new in the industry two pieces of advice, what would it be? (This could be related to your personal experiences, advice on personal life or professional)

1. Get involved.

2. Related to #1, step outside of your comfort zone :).
