Communications Specialist

What do you do on a day-to-day basis?

As a communication specialist, I am responsible for the communication and marketing needs for the College of Human Sciences, Harrison School of Pharmacy and School of Nursing. Much of my time is spent writing – news releases to be used by local media, featured stories for the Auburn homepage, or profiles for a school’s alumni newsletter or magazine. I work closely with members of our creative team to produce newsletters, magazines, books and invitations for human sciences, pharmacy or nursing. I am an experienced writer as a former news reporter with a journalism degree.

What is one of your favorite Auburn memories?

One of my favorite Auburn memories is attending the 2013 Iron Bowl with my dad. I enjoyed sharing the tradition of an Auburn home game with him and introducing him to various friends. When Chris Davis ran Alabama’s missed field goal all the way back to our end zone for game-winning touchdown, even my dad got caught up in the excitement, jumping and screaming like the rest of us. I remember jumping into his arms for a great big hug. It was a special moment for many reasons. One I won’t forget anytime soon. Nor will my dad. He LOVES telling everyone that he was there for that historic and unbelievable win.

What do you like to do outside of work? /What are your interests?

I am a TV fanatic and movie buff. If there isn’t yard work to be done or a football game to attend, I am catching up on my favorite shows or watching a movie I’ve never seen before. I really enjoy the classic movies with actors like James Cagney, Barbara Stanwyck and Jean Arthur. I am so grateful for TCM and Amazon.com for fueling my obsession. I proudly admit that in 2012 I saw 303 movies for the first time. Some of my favorites from that year were Topper, Man of a Thousand Faces, Keeper of the Flame, and Around the World in 80 Days. If you have a favorite you think I haven’t seen, please let me know.
