Energy Smart Website
The Energy Smart Website was created to empower customers to lower high energy bills through conservation. For this project I won a Public Relations Association of Louisiana (PRAL) Cypress Award. View the Energy Smart Website PR Plan here.
Company Fan Drive to benefit low-income senior citizens
The Cleco Fan Drive is an annual fundraising event through which employees raise money to purchase fans for senior citizens across Louisiana. For four years, I served as the chair, project manager and communications lead for the event. I set up the team, hosted meetings and motivational events, and worked with the Council on Aging offices to distribute fans. During my first year as chairperson, I led a team of 30 employees in increasing funds raised from $10,000 in 2008 to $22,000 in 2009. In 2011 I worked with the team to create a benefit cookbook. I also set up live radio remote broadcasts and increased publicity by working with the media.
