Summary

I am an emerging marketing executive primed in the art of communication and business development. I bring results-focused leadership to any team. This leadership, documented through being elected to numerous executive positions within organizations, will kick-start improvements in marketing effectiveness and client relationships. By being driven to succeed, I can make those around me perform at higher levels. This is evident through winning awards in creativity and technical ability and winning "Einstein" awards for creativity and "Behind the Scenes" awards for cost-savings ideas.

I work with the sales and marketing of a 282-suite property in St. Paul, MN. This position has allowed me to take on great responsibility in a wide-range of marketing and promotional based activities. Event planning, flyer development, grassroots marketing, creating and maintaining business partnerships, and community involvement are just a few areas that fall under my responsibility. I was also responsible for our involvement in our regional chamber of commerce. This has created an opportunity to network and partner with local businesses and leaders.
