If you want to get personal......read on. Otherwise, just skip down to the basics under Qualifications and Capabilities.
You are what you consistently do. This mantra keeps me focused, grounded, and happy.
Looking at me, you'd never guess the unconventional upbringing I have had. My childhood is a just a representation of what I love about people. We all have stories. I was made in Wisconsin & my family bonded over home-cooked meals and sporting events.
I earned my Bachelor's in Communication & Psychology from the University of Minnesota, Duluth (Go Bulldogs) where I found my passion for research. I was lead researcher for many projects in cognition, media, & violence. It was an iPedagogy cognition study that landed me presenting at a conference in Denver and eventually a published author in the Journal of Communication Research. (Dr. Aaron Boyson & Dr. Ed Downs, you two rock)
My passions are down various avenues. Upon graduating, I wanted to explore my options. I paired my love of fashion with my innate niche for marketing and research as the Assistant Buyer and Social Media Marketing Coordinator at Parc Boutique. I learned the ins and outs of owning a small business and loved every minute of it. Family inspired my move to Phoenix so I relocated for a position as PR & Marketing Director at Life Care Centers of America. The health care industry certainly was intimidating at first, but I thrive off of challenges. In the year I've been with the company, I've continued to advance while maintaining my integrity.
Always evolving, I have a passion for consumer behavior and building quality relationships with anyone that crosses my path.
