Press Releases

ADESA Corporate Move

In 2002, Indianapolis-based ADESA Corporation made the move from Indianapolis to its current space in Carmel, Indiana. As the company's first public relations manager, I worked with members of the senior management team, city and state government and local businesses to organize the announcement. This included conducting media training and developing a news conference that later received an award for media relations from the Hoosier Chapter of Public Relations Society of America.  

ACL FIT

ACL injuries are some of the most common orthopaedic injuries. However, an OrthoIndy physician and his Extender developed a program to keep more athletes injury-free. While working in media relations for OrthoIndy and The Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital, I helped promote this program still in use today. 

White House Press Secretaries

At the SPJ Convention, I covered former White House press secretaries about their experiences.

During the 2007 SPJ Convention and National Journalism Conference, I covered White House Press Secretaries who spoke about the day in the life. 

Goldleaf Announcement

During a slow news week, I worked with AUL Retirement Services to make a major announcement about building new business. This resulted in several stories in many investment publications.

Phi Kappa Psi new appointment

As the Director of Communications for Phi Kappa Psi, I am responsible for producing news. My announcement was one of the first pieces of news I created and distributed. It was odd writing about myself, but also enjoyable.
