About Thurraya

After 20+ years in the U.S. Navy as a public affairs officer, I will be transitioning to the private sector in April 2019. I am an accredited public relations professional with 10+ years of leading multi-disciplined teams in developing and executing communications strategies. My strengths include internal communications, public speaking, media relations, personnel management and crisis communications. I am seeking opportunities to combine my passion for travel, culinary and hospitality with my public relations skills.
