Nathalie Strickland is TVPPA’s new Vice President for Communications.

Strickland earned her undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and launched her public-relations career in Kansas City. She’s worked in Chattanooga for the past 18 years, as both a PR-firm vice president and as a solo practitioner. A significant portion of her work during that stretch was on behalf of Chattanooga, TN, EPB.

“We are thrilled to welcome Nathalie to the TVPPA team,” said TVPPA Executive Vice President Danette Scudder.

“Nathalie’s background and experience, coupled with an understanding of the public-power model in the Valley and the issues and challenges our members face, promise to enhance the caliber of our communications strategy,” Scudder said.
