She was responsible for developing and maintaining the Sacramento Chapter’s social media online presence using various platforms: Facebook, Twitter, and Hootsuite. In May 2013, her contributions earned the Sacramento Chapter the “Communications Award – Social Media” – an exciting milestone for both her and IAWP (as formerly known), as an organization.
