For over 10 years, I have helped professional services firms increase their visibility internally and externally by strategically planning and implementing a variety of marketing, communication and business development initiatives in large and small markets. As a positive influencer, I strive to create results and collaborate with employees at all levels within an organization. In addition to my career, I also have a passion for serving our community. I have volunteered for and was a member of YP Impact, the Association for Women in Communications Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter and the Association for Accounting Marketing Wisconsin Chapter. I earned my bachelor's degree in journalism and mass communication, with an emphasis in print journalism and advertising/public relations, from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in 2002. When I am not working or volunteering, I enjoy traveling, photography, cooking, gardening and spending time with my friends and family.
