Marketing Leader. Creative. Strategist.
Marketing is the generous act of helping people solve problems… It’s a chance to change culture for the better.
I'm a busy marketer with a bubbly personality that’s constantly inspired by the world. 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, discovering new places, 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 good 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. With roots in creative design, I have a not-so-secret superpower. My ability to ideate and visually depict communication tools that drive marketing success allows me to bring another layer of strategy to activate brands and grow businesses.
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 that will make an impact on people and businesses.
