Director of Events and Communications
I find joy in organizing events and meetings, educational seminars, conferences, and leadership training for WB Lending Solutions | WB Strategies. My initial exploration of Public Relations led me to a vast array of opportunities, including grant writing, press releases, corporate and small business communications, full-scale newsletters, blogs, brochures, marketing pieces and more. My volunteer projects involve increasing the level of dignity and personal achievement for youth, focusing on financial literacy and education, coordinating community outreach and assisting seniors with legal issues.
