Becky’s award-winning work in pitching stories for the U.S. Navy resulted in more Fleet Week media stories in the Greater Cincinnati market than nearly every other national market – and very nearly earned her her very own submarine.

What was your favorite book as a kid?
The Enchanted Castle by Edith Nesbit. I thought it was the best story ever. Until I had one of my 12-year-olds read it and he thought it was dull. Compared to Harry Potter, I guess anything enchanted is dull!
When did you know you wanted to work in communications?
After putting together my 8th grade graduation slideshow (yes, slideshow) on my own, I knew I’d do something in communications. I even remember what song it was played to: ”Love is the Answer” by England Dan & John Ford Coley
If you could invite five people to dinner, who would they be?
Cleopatra (fascinating woman), Jesus Christ, Kim Jong-il (pure goodness pitted against what I think is pretty close to pure evil – would make interesting dinner conversation), George Clooney (mostly because he’s nice to look at but also because I think his work in the Sudan is admirable), my maternal grandma (she died when my mom was 13 – so I obviously never met her).
