My love for stories, need to understand larger context, and desire to truly understand people’s motivations led me to major in history at USF (modern European military history, to be more specific). Luckily, that curiosity has served me well as I discovered different passions along the way! I’ve been a corporate trainer, an event manager, and a middle school history teacher — all leading me down the road to a career in marketing.

I have worked in Marketing and Advertising for more than a decade, spanning industries from professional sports to home-building. I’ve developed comprehensive digital marketing strategies and managed projects and budgets for Women’s Running Magazine, the Outback Bowl, Metro Places, and Transamerica Financial, as well as smaller businesses with more specific needs and smaller budgets. I love working with our talented team of strategists, designers, and developers to build beautiful campaigns that reach the right audience at the right time.

Even though I’ve spent most of my life in Florida, I’m a Georgia-girl at heart — I like my tea sweet, my grits cheesy, and I’ll address a group as “y’all.” Downtown St. Petersburg has been my home for 11 years, and on weekends, you’re likely to find me exploring downtown, biking to breweries, or running along the waterfront. As a runner and triathlete, I apply my competitive and committed spirit to everything I do (just don’t challenge me to a game of Risk).
