My current objective is to find a position as a valuable member of an organization that leverages my skills, strategic thinking, and leadership abilities. I believe I bring the broad "soft" skills that will represent any organization in any industry successfully.


I currently work helping businesses increase their web presence using various Internet marketing techniques; SEO, PPC, analytics, and social media. I have my undergraduate degree in Business from Michigan State University, and my MBA from Walsh College with a specialization in Marketing.
