About Thurraya

After 26 years in the U.S. Navy (20+ as a public affairs officer), I transitioned to civilian life in June 2019. I am seeking opportunities to combine my passion for travel, culinary and hospitality with my public relations skills. 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.
