County public Information office loses new hire

Danica Phillips, who was only hired by Escambia County in January, has notified her bosses that she, too, is leaving her job. She is a media and public information manager under Laura Cole.

Phillips was a mass communication specialist aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt and earned a navy-wide award for Best Infographic of the Year in 2015. Before joining the county, she worked for Five Star Properties as a digital marketing strategist.

Phillips was hired to replace Hana Frenette, who resigned in December after three years with the county.
