Originally hailing from Cincinnati, OH, she attended Miami University of Ohio and earned her B.A. in Strategic Communications and Marketing, graduating magna cum laude. Upon graduation she moved to Chicago where she first was an intern, and in four years earned three promotions to end as a Senior Associate at a business-to-business public relations firm. In this role Aggie honed her media relations, content creation, research, crisis communications and new business prospecting skills as she shaped and executed national communications campaigns on behalf of professional services firms across the country. Outside of her role advising clients on their communications and brand awareness goals, she co-managed the firm’s robust internship program, ran point on the firm’s values program and served as a regional market media ambassador. While in Chicago, Aggie was quite active in her community, serving in various roles on the Board of the Public Relations Society of America - Chicago Chapter and volunteering at the city’s largest no-kill animal shelter, PAWS Chicago.
