The one sentence that I’d like to hear from my boss is….Your work has made a tremendous difference.
If you could choose three new benefits that your city currently doesn’t offer, what would they be?
Cell phone reimbursement structure for personal cell phone. Otherwise I’m happy.
If you could create a local government super hero, who would they be?
Invincible Doctor Engagement – able to bring people together for productive meetings with the flick of a wrist.
If I had one free hour each day, I would….

Sleep. Or read a book. Or go for a run. (maybe this is why I never have free time?)

Name three public organizations other than your own that you admire.

(Speaking from the communications perspective):

  • City of Tampa
  • NASA
  • City of Springfield (Missouri)
  • One bonus – Dept of the Interior wins it all on Instagram

My ideal Saturday morning is…
A 9-mile run with friends around White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas.
