About MeAs an account manager at Big Sea, I make beautiful things happen. Making plans and getting the right people plugged into the process at the right time is my specialty. I have worked in web development and marketing for over a decade. I have experience on both the client side in franchise marketing and on the agency side of the business.
I have a BA in Communication and Anthropology from Mercer University. After working for three years as a marketing manager I went back to get a MS in Marketing at Georgia State University. Working full-time while in school gave me real-world experience that complemented the principles and best practices learned from my professors.
I’ve brought order and success to clients’ marketing campaigns and projects for over a decade. I started as a marketing coordinator, transitioned into account management, then found my true calling in project management. Over the years, I’ve managed projects for national and global companies such as Georgia Pacific, GE and Aggreko, and locally owned businesses. I am the eternal optimist, smiling in the face of daunting challenges. Positive attitude and strong work ethic are the signatures of my career.
When I’m not keeping projects locked and on schedule, I’m definitely doing something fun. Outside of work, I enjoy a kaleidoscope of interests that range from plant propagation to belting out some karaoke tunes, and most importantly, being the social media manager for my dog (@mrjackmcfurland). I am a Georgia Peach born and bred, but am proud to be a member of the St. Pete community.
