Message from the Founder:
"I have been described this way by my peers and my competitors alike. A politically savvy, results driven, operations and administration executive. An innovative problem-solver who understands how to build consensus and engineer consent in tough environments. An expert communicator with a reputation for strategic planning and implementation of complex public policy and communications initiatives. An executive coach and thought leader with proven capabilities in: public/private partnerships; operations and administration leadership at the county, state, and federal levels; public infrastructure; business and economic development policy, promotion, and implementation; and fiscal oversight.
I’ll take that.
During my county, state, and federal government tenure, I was able to bring my unique knowledge and expertise in the halls of government to the benefit of residents, businesses, nonprofits, and other entities that wanted to connect to the process. I created win-win public/private partnerships that allowed business and government to solve concerns and challenges.
As the founder and leader of Byrd's Eye, I now use my communications and political expertise to assist my clients and my partners in the very unforgiving public arena of government, campaigns, and elections and to educate them on the irreversible privatization of politics."
