About Me

I recognized the power social media held for marketers long before it was popular. After implementing social media strategies on both the client and agency side, I founded Freshlime in order to lead businesses to increased sales and greater brand awareness through social media marketing and other online vehicles.

I am involved in leadership roles in several community organizations. I am current the VP of Communications for AMA Michiana and I serve on the Marketing Committee for the Humane Society of Elkhart County.

I earned a degree in advertising and public relations from Michigan State University in 2004 and was a member of two National Championship Water Polo Teams. When not at my computer, I enjoy spending time boating with my husband and two dogs.
