She served as Corporate Communications Manager for Kemper Insurance from 2002 to 2004, managing agent and employee communications nationwide, including the company’s website, intranet, events, and co-op marketing program. She continued to work with Kemper for several years on various projects, including incentive programs and advertising and creative development.
She started her career in public relations and spent eight years with a branding and public relations agency in New York City. She holds a B.A. in Communications from Florida State University.
She is mom to two adult children – Gracie, 21, and Ethan, 24. She recently remarried, inheriting a 10-year-old fur baby, and resides in Raleigh, North Carolina.
