How many years have you worked in the communications and public relations industry?

15 years

Why do you love working with Wixted clients?

You never experience the same day twice. We help our clients with external and internal communications, issues, good news, speeches, videos … it’s a great variety and it helps us better serve our clients, no matter their needs.

What are some trending topics that companies should be prepared for or know more about?

Internal communication has always been important, though I’ve seen it take on more meaning over the last 10 years. The companies that did the best during the pandemic were those that had already prioritized the needs of their employees – others had to catch up fast and often struggled telling their stories externally.

COVID reset our expectations, and consumers are more aware of how companies treat their employees. If you put your people and their safety first, you’re going to do well – especially when you need to weather some tough times.

When you aren’t assisting Wixted clients, where would you be?

Reading a book (hopefully close to water), exercising or hiking, or with my family – doubtfully, all at the same time.
