She holds an MBA with a communication specialization, and is a certified trainer of NLP and Hypnosis.

Bill McCarren – Executive Director of the National Press Club to raise awareness of kidnapped journalist Austin Tice
Austin Tice is an American journalist who is being held captive in Syria. He was stopped at a checkpoint in Syria and is now believed to be unjustly detained by the Syrian Government. A native of Houston and an Eagle Scout, Austin wrote for the Washington Post and McClatchy Newspapers, and was part of a McClatchy team that won a Polk Award for coverage of Syria. Austin was at Georgetown Law School when he left to go to work in Syria. He served in the United States Marine Corps in Iraq prior to Georgetown. In April 2018, the FBI offered a $1 million reward for information leading to his safe return.
A coalition of restaurants are joining The National Press Club, The Washington Post, Georgetown University and Reporters Without Borders to raise awareness of Austin’s case and raise more reward money through the Night Out program. The program encourages restaurants to offer a percentage of the revenue raised from the Night Out promotion at their restaurant on May 2, 2019. To commit, they must complete and sign a pledge form. This program has been very successful. Right now, there are more than 50 restaurants participating in 10 states and the District of Columbia. Some of these restaurants include Jose Andres, Wolfgang Puck and James Beard Award Winner, Chris Shepard.
