As the Senior Communications Strategist at CRS, I have functioned mostly behind the scenes over the last 17 years. My primary functions have evolved since Mike’s passing. I now focus primarily on strategic planning, client communications, web design, email, social media, event planning, marketing & advertising. Although, at one point I participated in a weekly radio show with my late husband, Mike, called ‘Fields Financial Fitness’ on Freedom 95 radio.
I have a double BS in Marketing and Logistics, as well as a minor in communications from Indiana University and an MA from Ball State University, in Public Relations. I also have a certificate degree in travel and tourism. My professional background includes over 30 years in Communications in a variety of industries including travel/hospitality, promotions, tech and financial services.
I have been an active member in the community serving on the board for the American Marketing Association, as a committee member of the Hoosier chapter of the Public Relations Society, contributed to event planning for the Financial Planning Association of Greater Indiana, served as a board member for two local small businesses and lead various ministry programs.
I have been to many countries outside the US, and I have been to 38 of the 50 states. I have also lived in seven different states and attended 13 different schools. As I have also been a travel agent, I love to chat about travel plans and I'm always willing to share my favorite spots.
Fun facts: I have bungee jumped, zip lined, been on over a dozen cruises and downhill ski. I also love interior decorating and chose all the aesthetics for our office.
