As a digital marketer with a passion for data, I believe in creating fresh, useful, intuitive media that helps achieve organizational objectives while producing a smooth and positive experience for your constituents. I believe that a strong social media presence, paired with a solid marketing plan, can create a substantial connection with your customers across multiple media. I believe in having fun, constantly evolving in a perpetually changing media environment, and that success is always more fun when you have a team to share it with. I believe that a great story can bring a brand to the next level. It just needs to be heard.
