Marketer. Creative. Collaborator.
Marketing is the generous act of helping people solve problems… It’s a chance to change culture for the better.
I'm an busy marketer that’s inspired by the world around me. I live a simple-life running around with the my little dog, fishing on the lake, running trails, wandering outside, exploring nature, trying any and every sport, drinking good drinks and eating good food. I find joy in the little things but am eager to impact people, businesses and organizations that are seeking someone to lead and fuel to their growth with marketing.
Born naturally curious, I embrace the opportunity to dive into the details, ask a lot of questions, collaborate with multiple teams, leverage data and think outside the box. I'm all about tackling business challenges and delivering a strategy that drives measurable results. That's what I do and what I love.
I'm a graphic designer that fell in love with marketing and strategy, too!
My career began in graphic design and has evolved into a passion that goes beyond just creating something beautiful. Besides a big cup of warm coffee, what wakes me up in the morning is solving problems through the strategic development of materials, stories and marketing channels that will make an impact on people and businesses.
