PROFESSIONAL HISTORY: I began my professional career as a writer/producer for children’s TV shows and traveled extensively for commercial productions. I also worked for the VA Power & Light producing their training videos, very exciting stuff. I loved suiting up and climbing in bucket trucks to film the electricians working on 250,000 volt energized power-lines! When I joined MDT, I produced
training and educational videos as well as commercials promoting our service and programs. I love promoting public transportation. The best part of my job now is brainstorming and creating great campaigns with the best marketing staff ever.
