Team Effort Leads to Recognition

I feel very honored today to find out that I am among several local outstanding women chosen as finalists for the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber’s WE Celebrate awards honoring women for their achievement, innovation, social responsibility and mentoring. I cannot say enough: this is a team effort!

I was chosen as a finalist in the Social Media Innovator of the Year category. As you can see here, this year’s finalists contains an incredible group of women. I was surprised and feel very fortunate to be among them.

My passion for social media is an offshoot of my passion for transparency and accountability. Our customers, the providers we work with, the taxpayers who fund us — they all deserve to know what we are doing and why we are doing it.

As a non-profit, Hamilton County’s Department of Job and Family Services has to find inexpensive ways to get its messages to the public. Social media is the perfect vehicle for an organization like ours. Our communications group has embraced it with passion and I have done all I can to support those efforts. It is nice to receive recognition, but this is truly a team effort. Thanks to all who have contributed!
