Following a stint as a freelance reporter, she served as a public relations professional in the nonprofit sector working to enhance community service through storytelling and online engagement. Wired to connect, Bobbi is often found rooting for the home team (in her case, the Green Bay Packers), contemplating Earlybird vs. Valencia, or generating “likes” like a boss.
