What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I have a fantastic role that allows me to work with an extremely talented team, learn new things every day, and interact with people on a regular basis. I oversee the corporate marketing and communications (marcom) at Bergmann. No day is ever the same, but every day I get to help our team members, clients, partners and prospective clients feel better connected to Bergmann’s brand and the solutions our team members provide. Writing and helping the MarCom team grow are my passions. In the future, I look forward to growing with Bergmann and continuing to provide strategic support to our leadership team.
How do you unwind from a busy day? A session at the gym, followed by time at home with my husband, a glass of wine and good food (which is why we go to the gym!).

Last song/album that you purchased/downloaded? The Foo Fighters Station on Sirius XM is always on Alexa in my office.
