If I weren’t public affairs professional I’d be a… History professor. I’ve always been fascinated with history from ancient times to recent events.

On my first day at FSB Core Strategies... I jumped right into a lot of research and background reading on the firm’s clients and knew that I would enjoy working with such a great group of people on some interesting and challenging projects.   
I enjoy working at FSB Core Strategies because… Everyone is very helpful and good at what they do. This is a solid team of professionals and I am glad to be a part of it.

When leaving the office for lunch, my favorite Orange County restaurant to be seen at is… I haven’t had a chance to explore much yet, but Specialty’s downstairs makes an awfully good sandwich.
