I am a public affairs and marketing professional with over 5 years of experience in guiding the communications of an international non-profit organization. Since receiving my MBA in Global Management from the Thunderbird School of Global Management, I am pursuing opportunities in marketing and consulting. Some of my core strengths are the ability to motivate a team and to see projects through to successful completion. I am also able to navigate multicultural and international situations well. I have a BA in International Studies with a focus on Europe from Middlebury College in Vermont. During the summer of 2008, I interned at Bridgevine Inc., a leading e-commerce solutions provider for a wide array of services. My internship focused on communications and market research related to the new site, in order to better identify customers and provide the best service and experience. I spent January 2009 in Amman, Jordan advising Beecell, a mobile value-added services and solutions provider, on entering the U.S. market.


Currently I am seeking a position where I can contribute my communications, marketing, and global management skills to a growing dynamic company.
