Strategic Creative Executive
I’m a marketing leader specializing in storytelling and team-building.
My experience in brand management, departmental leadership and copywriting/content at digital, B2C and B2B marketing companies has given me a unique perspective on business strategy and creative problem solving.
I’ve built creative teams within agencies and, most recently, for a $60 million organization. I’m fluent in recruitment, personal/professional development, budgets and workflow. I take pride in identifying individuals’ strengths, managing with transparency and offering support and inspiration rather than ego without substance.
In a nutshell, I create branded stories worth telling and teams worthy of trust.
