She has developed and executed countless multi-media campaigns to drive growth and awareness of CVHHH’s programs and services, strengthen relationships with community partners and referring providers, and to meet fundraising goals. Her work has improved engagement with key stakeholders and members of the community and vastly expanded CVHHH’s reach through traditional and digital media. “My approach to marketing and communications is rooted in celebrating the people who are part of CVHHH’s community. This includes our dedicated staff, generous donors, and the Central Vermonters who choose us to care for themselves, or their loved ones, at home. I am honored to work at CVHHH and am deeply committed to supporting the organization’s growth.”
