Internal Communications Specialist | 303-497-8609

As the Internal Communications Specialist for UCAR/NCAR/UCP, I am responsible for developing and implementing internal communications strategies and plans affecting our employees. In addition, I am contributing my skills in change management to new organization-wide initiatives.

My background 

I joined UCAR in February 2014. Working in nonprofit organizations, utilities, higher education, manufacturing, and now research has given me a diverse background and breadth of experience in my field. I earned a bachelor’s degree in radio-television communications from the home of the Salukis, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. I hold certifications in strategic communications management from the International Association of Business Communicators and in change management from Prosci. I have trained others in public participation and change management tools and techniques. Having lived in six different states, I am pleased to call Lakewood, Colorado my home of 17 years.
