What makes me different? 

  • I have 20  years of experience in design, project management, marketing, and advertising.

  • I am PMP certified. 

  • I like to learn new technologies and leverage them to streamline operations and improve processes.

  • I care, so when there is garbage on the floor, I pick it up, and when the coffee is empty, I make more. 

  • The creative side of my brain is always fighting with the analytical side. They like balance. 

  • I don’t leave people behind. I pick them up and carry the extra weight when I need to. That is what leaders do.

  • I develop people based on their skills. Capitalize on their strengths and train/develop their less skillful muscles. Read for yourself.

  • I can bake a mean cake. Seriously, “baker” is in my last name. 

  • I am hungry and more so, I want to work for a company that is just as hungry.

PORTFOLIO

Experience

2008-2018

Director of Creative Services

I was a Macgyver of the creative department. I took complex information and organized it creatively to help our clients be successful. When I was not conceptualizing, I was managing the design/web team, overseeing IT operations, and leading internal marketing efforts.

2007- 2008

Design Contractor

During my three month contracting retreat at the national energy company, I worked on a variety of design projects with internal and external clients. I worked as a designer and accounts/project manager. I would oversee projects from design through production.

2007

Head Designer and Marketing Lead

I built a house, well figuratively. During my time there, I formed great relationships, secured marketing vendors,  and helped their new advertising team learn how to use smart marketing and design to sell homes. 

2003 - 2007

Senior Designer/Account Manager

I was finally a designer! I started as an entry-level recruitment Graphic Artist. Within a year, I was promoted to Senior Designer. I took on all projects and challenges. Aside from strategy and design, I worked with Human Resources as an Account Manger for the design and production of marketing materials.

2018-2020

Assistant Director of Creative Operations

Sometimes leaping from tall buildings, I find myself in a role where I use my technical and creative skillset to bring teams together and provide solutions that focus on the University's mission and strategic goals. 

Current

Sr Manger, Creative & Digital Experience

I am a brand owner. In my current role, I inspire, educate and demonstrate how a solid brand can make a great company even better. I work with the print, digital, web, and events team to bring the brand to life and tell a story.
