Thanks for visiting my page to learn more about me. Where to start?
Well, I really enjoy (1) creating pretty things, (2) making a difference, and (3) having fun. So, it is no surprise that I’m currently the Dir. of Marketing at The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery (OMB) in Charlotte, NC. OMB’s reason for being is “to enrich the quality of life in our community,” and I love being a part of that mission everyday. We are the largest and oldest independent brewery in Charlotte, and the third largest homegrown brewery in North Carolina.
Within the greater industry, I am highly involved in Craft Freedom: a coalition of hometown breweries and fellow craft beer lovers working to raise NC’s 25,000 barrel cap law. I am also a member of Charlotte Independent Brewers Alliance (CIBA), which promotes local brewers and cidermakers.
Within greater Charlotte, I am the de facto president of LoSo Neighborhood, and am an active participant in Catawba Riverkeepers Foundation, Adopt-A-Stream, and Catawba Lands Conservancy. Through OMB, I also partner with a long list of organizations including the May 20th Society, NC USO, 24 Foundation, Promising Pages and the Hospitality and Tourism Alliance.
In addition, I am a graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Media and Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC). I received my Master of Science in IMC in December 2018.
My greatest love outside of work is travel. I lived abroad in Copenhagen, Singapore & Hong Kong for a year combined. I’ve visited 26 countries on 5 continents, and I’ve spent time in 26 of our 50 states.
Friends most often describe me as “dependable.” Co-workers joke I’m “quirky.” My family would tell you I “make a great second impression.” So be sure to visit this webpage at least twice, and check out the press page and social media links in the menu.
