What’s been your biggest professional accomplishment so far in your career?

Launching RPM Communication Consulting represents many facets of my personal and professional growth. I believe communication is a critical value for sustained organizational success, and RPM has provided the opportunity to share that with others. We’ve been fortunate to support many organizations in the state and we’re excited for what the future holds.

In 2022, I founded CT’s first Ladies Gaelic Football.
