With more than 23 years in marketing program creation and business development, I use my diverse professional experience to understand our clients’ businesses, articulate their challenges and opportunities, and help the Street Level Studio creative team develop effective ways to drive clients' growth. I started my career writing and selling B2B and B2C incentive marketing programs within the foodservice, grocery (wholesale and retail) and janitorial/sanitation industries, partnering with Fortune 100 and 500 companies as well as smaller enterprises. After earning an MBA with a focus in Marketing from Lake Forest Graduate School of Business Management, I transitioned to selling integrated and omnichannel marketing and communications to associations and nonprofits—expanding not only my knowledge base but also my ability to connect each organization's unique goals with customized strategic solutions.
I have a passion for athletics, from both a viewing and participating perspective. Given the opportunity, I truly enjoy being the one out there engaging in marathons, triathlons, and open-water swimming events. My enthusiasm for sports has led me to complete nine Ironman races to date! An avid animal lover with two horses and two cats, I also enjoy competing with my horses at show jumping events across the country and volunteering at a local animal shelter.
