For its work with the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) to build credibility and knowledge of the systems engineering profession, JWC received the award for Op-eds/Editorial Columns. At the rise of the Ebola crisis, JWC successfully pitched, drafted and placed op-eds with results appearing in “The Atlanta Journal-Constitution”; “Dallas Morning News”; and key trade magazine, “Hospital Impact.” The increased awareness led to a cover story featuring three INCOSE members in “Professional Engineers,” a leading engineering trade publication.

Account Supervisor Sandy Young received San Diego X Brand Diego Awards’ Young Achiever Award as a PR and marketing practitioner. With more than 10 years in the communications industry, Young has been repeatedly recognized for her dedication to her clients, her company, the media and her craft. As a result of her charitable nature, compassion and dedication to the public relations profession, San Diego X Brand Awards judges rightfully asked, “Does this person sleep? She gives back generously both professionally and personally.”
