Senior Strategist + Creative Account Manager
I graduated from the University of Dayton with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communication Design and a minor in Art History.
It was at UD that I met my husband, David. We will be married for 10 years this fall and have a two-year-old daughter, Charlotte, and a 10-year-old bulldog, Emma. As a family, we love to be outside, travel, and enjoy good food.
I started working as an intern at MJ2 Marketing in 2011 after graduation. I was actually MJ2’s first full-time employee. My focus was on design, but I quickly got swept up in all things digital and social. I “grew up” at MJ2 working as a Graphic Designer, Account Manager, and Creative Director.
I left Columbus and MJ2 in December of 2017 when my husband’s job relocated us to Miami, Florida. In Miami, I spent over 5 years as the Director of Social Media at an advertising agency that specializes in the franchise and hospitality industry, working primarily with a global hotel, real estate, and restaurant brands. It was here that I strengthened my skills in strategy, paid media, and analytics. I am very passionate about creativity, trackability, and constantly optimizing.
I loved living in Miami, but I am so excited to be back home in Ohio and at MJ2.
