What I do: Communicate all that is happening at The Sanctuary through print, web, video and social networking.
Favorite part of my job: learning new things. The way we communicate seems to always be growing and changing. I love learning new skills in areas like design, web site creation, photography and video editing.
Little known fact: I have broken both arms twice.
I’d rather be: riding my bike on a path through the woods.
