Next PR


I am a technology and operations expert with 25+ years of experience. I drive transformation for Next PR and its 80+ clients. I push boundaries every day, breaking through with innovative problem-solving – some call me the Olivia Pope of Next PR. I also lead the diversity, inclusion and belonging program, and I am a Prosci-certified change management expert. I have volunteered as a tutor at an abused women and children’s shelter, traveled to Romania to help orphaned teens learn computer skills, and currently serve as the board treasurer for Inside Out Youth Services, which supports LGBTQ youth.

Next PR

We’re agile, we’re fresh and we always know what’s coming next. Formerly SSPR, Next PR is an award-winning PR firm with one major focus: results. Founded in 1978, we have offices in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Colorado Springs, Denver and Chicago. Next PR boasts the best and brightest in public relations from across the country, but more than that, we bring the fun – and the motivation – to our daily grind. Next PR offers medical and dental benefits and a generous 401K match. We enjoy paid time off and long weekends on major holidays. We soak in the sun with summer hours, champion success with employee recognition, give back with volunteer time off and stay current through professional development. We host an office exchange to visit family and friends in any of our cool locations without using vacation days and remain committed to work-life balance for all employees.
