“Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness and they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy, or they become legends.” – One Stab
I love (1) creating pretty things, (2) making a difference, and (3) having fun. So, it’s no surprise I work in food and beverage marketing, an industry passionate about serving joy to consumers.
For five years, I managed an independent craft beer brand that leveraged its hyper-local roots to its advantage. After, I managed new product launches and the dinner daypart at a regional fast food company equally driven by its heritage. Long-lasting brands know who they are; they keep their promises. (Post MBA, I hope to join and manage another consumer goods brand.)
My greatest love outside of work is traveling. I’ve lived abroad in Copenhagen, Singapore, and Hong Kong. I’ve visited 26 countries on 5 continents, and I’ve spent time in over half of our 50 states. Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch.
A GLOBE scholar and alum of UNC Chapel Hill KFBS, I studied international business in undergrad and I’m always thrilled by opportunities to work abroad. In December 2018, I earned my Masters of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Media and IMC. In August 2021, I’ll be a MBA Candidate at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.
Friends most often describe me as “dependable.” Co-workers joke I’m “quirky.” My novel writing cohort agrees I’m “character driven.” And, my family would tell you I “make a great second impression.” So be sure to visit this webpage at least twice. The press page includes a few examples of me in the news over the past five years.
