Communication Specialist III- Marketing & Communications
University Service Center, Rm. 109
I am a communication specialist, and it is my job to help tell University stories to the widest possible audience. I work closely with media contacts to help publicize University accomplishments, activities, and events. As a member of the Marketing & Communications Office, I work with the rest of my team to coordinate promotional and marketing support for the Colleges and Departments here on campus.
As a longtime Corpus Christi resident, I attended Richard King High School and Del Mar College before graduating from the University of North Texas in Denton with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism in 1998.
My journalism career began in 1999 as a copy editor for the Waco Tribune-Herald. A few years later, I began working for my hometown newspaper, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. In 2006, I became a staff writer for Del Mar College where I also worked on web videos for the College’s channel on YouTube. About four years ago, I became a copy editor for Community Impact Newspaper in Pflugerville where my copy-editing fingerprints could be seen in more than 2 million copies of the company’s 26 suburban and community newspapers.
A fun fact about me is that I am a lifelong hobbyist musician with stints in about 40 musical projects since the mid ‘80s. I have two children whose activities keep me busy on the weekends. Needless to say, I am thrilled to be back in the Sparkling City by the Sea!
