For four years I have been the lead for digital communications for the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. I have a dual reporting role to the Governor’s Digital Communications Officer and the Public Affairs Communications Director at DMVA. I also work alongside the Public Affairs officers for the Pennsylvania National Guard and leadership from our Office for Veterans Affairs. I am part of a communications team with a dual mission of providing quality service to the commonwealth’s nearly 800,000 veterans and their families and overseeing the Pennsylvania National Guard.
Some of my duties include:
• Social Media: Grew the Department’s social media followers across Facebook and Twitter.
• Website Management: Managed the Department’s public-facing website used by hundreds of thousands of constituents every year. Managed the Department’s communications between the Governor’s office and the state website development vendor. Lead the redesign for the Pennsylvania Veterans Homes website in 2019-2020.
•Work with the state’s media agency to design campaigns for statewide initiatives.
