Levi Strauss & Co.

Country or State

United States


After 22 years working for a global public relations agency, I left to join a 170-year old start-up -- native to California like myself. At Levi Strauss & Co. I work on iconic, global brands focused on generating profits through principles with innovation and sustainability at the core of its business. And I get to wear jeans, khakis and yoga pants everyday. This is my best gig yet. I work in the Corporate Affairs department focused on executive communications for our President & CEO, Chip Bergh, along with our newly named President, Michelle Gass. I am a member of our communications leadership team and report to our Chief Communications Officer, Kelly McGinnis as part of a small but resourceful, scrappy, passionate team. Specialties: My skills include executive and employee communications, messaging, corporate recruiting, knowledge management, intranet development, portal technologies, content management, collaboration, taxonomy, media relations, new product launches, merger events and communications, event planning, publicity, video script development, change communications and writing website copy.
