A marketer fueled by coffee, compassion, and an undying love for the written word
Throughout my career, I have always sought opportunities where my talkative and inquisitive nature can be put to good use. I thrive in situations where I can develop, empower, and learn about others. My best work comes when communication and creativity can reign supreme. I love digging a little deeper to understand how and why people think and act the way they do so I can connect with them more effectively.
Being around passionate people. It began with my father, mother, and sister (thank you, fam!) and has continued with friends, classmates, and colleagues. The type of energy they exude is catching and it revs up my own creative engine. I make a point of trying to always have one foot outside of my comfort zone, which often helps me to find these amazing people where I least expect them. These interactions make me want to try new things, dream bigger, and run faster.
In my never-ending attempt to earn my overachiever merit badge, I graduated summa cum laude from Northern Illinois University, where I also served as the Secretary & President of co-ed service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega.
Indulging my artistic side, when I was four, I performed in an Emmy-winning TV special that helped young children learn to sign through songs. I have also had the opportunity of giving a vocal performance at Carnegie Hall.
