What she does for work:

As a Communications Specialist at Wheeler Clinic, I provide a wide variety of support to the Development and Communications department. On a daily basis, I manage and produce original content for the organization’s social media channels, website and intranet. I design and create the organization’s email marketing campaigns, ads, publications (outcomes reports, newsletters, etc.) and most recently video campaigns. I love the variety of projects that are associated with my position. Every day is something different and I am always learning something new. Some days, I am in the community doing outreach to increase brand recognition, while other days I am working with one of Wheeler’s over 100 behavioral health, primary care, special education and early childhood programs to help them communicate the services they provide to our consumers.

Her favorite thing about HYPE is:

My favorite thing about HYPE is the opportunity to meet so many different and enthusiastic young professionals and being involved in a great organization. At each HYPE event that I go to, I meet so many passionate young people. As HYPE Ambassador, I enjoy meeting new people at the Get HYPEd events and helping them learn more about what HYPE has to offer. In college, I was very involved in student activities and residence life. After graduating and moving closer to my job, I wanted to get involved in something that I was passionate about again. HYPE is always doing something different and it’s a great organization to be a part of.

If someone gave her 1 million dollars she would: 

If someone gave me a million dollars, I would say, “thank you.” After, I would open my own bakery. As a child, I wanted to be a chef and talked about opening a restaurant with my family. Nowadays, my coworkers love when I bake for birthdays and holidays and the snowplow crew at my condo complex enjoys baked goods during each major snow storm.

Her hobbies and interests outside of work are: 

After work, I love to be outside. When I am not at a HYPE event, I am usually walking or biking on a local rail trail. It helps me unwind after being inside in front of a computer all day. I love to hang out with friends and enjoy everything Connecticut and New England has to offer. My boyfriend and I enjoy boating, hiking, day tripping, going to the beach and wine tasting. Last summer, I went to all of the Connecticut wineries in the Passport to Connecticut Farm Wineries contest. In the winter, I spend time cooking, baking, reading and playing board games.
