    I’ve always thought of myself as adventurous. I love to travel, and have taken my two small children all over the US and Europe, and we’ve done our fair share of glamping. My best adventure by far is tied to Bars, and the first ever triathlon-clinic I attended where I learned to embrace my inner athlete and tackle open ocean swimming for the first time. Thank God for those Luna Bars. I was starving. I also found my tribe that day – a group of amazing women of all ages, sizes and abilities who push themselves, try new things, and are determined to do more today than they previously thought possible. I’ve now run many 10ks, completed a triathlon and even my first half marathon. I’ve learned I can handle overnight backpacking trips and still train every week for the next finish line.

    I revel in the next challenge and bring that sense of “Yes…AND” to my work leading Fenton’s Sustainability + Corporate practice. I help organizations, corporations and early stage companies with brand and messaging strategy, corporate-social responsibility, and sustainability consulting and communications innovation. Before joining Fenton, I ran my own firm, Communications4Good, where I served early stage companies and organizations like NRG/EVgo, Cradle to Cradle Institute, Duracell/Procter & Gamble, Energizer, Vday, Freedom from Hunger, Colgate-Palmolive, Gross National Happiness World Project, and Driscoll’s.

    The community organizer in me is met through my role as president of the board for the Mini Mermaid Running Club, as founder of the Yes & Circle of Change and 100+ Women Who Care giving circle.
