Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Brit, fluent in French, studied International Management at Southampton Solent University, UK, in addition to PR, communications, marketing and advertising at SKEMA International Business School, France. Lived and worked in 7 countries, dedicated myself to helping clients succeed in diverse markets and industries worldwide. I began my career in the hotel industry in the south of France and quickly realized that I needed to acquire experience elsewhere before I could move forward professionally. My drive and determination took me to New York City where I became fluent in marketing destinations, event spaces and tourism bureaus worldwide to the NA market. I took that experience back to France with me where I became the marketing and events manager for an internationally renowned company which produces VIP events at the Formula 1 Grand Prix worldwide. I made a permanent move back to the U.S. where I remained working with F1 for the United States Grand Prix and then became the Marketing Manager for IQPC, creating and executing marketing plans for multiple events nationally, handling 8 to 10 clients at a time. Following the invaluable new skills and experience I obtained from those positions, I became the Director of Marketing and Communications for Montclair Golf Club, a private club with 2 large locations in New Jersey, USA with a combined member/staff number of 1000+. At MGC I was brought in to determine the creative direction for a complete brand makeover, creating and executing new marketing and communication strategies to increase new business and maintain current membership. I am currently working freelance on project-based work and looking for a new team to join and a new challenge to take on!

Interesting Factoid

Once disrupted Selena Gomez's on-site movie shoot for 'Monte Carlo' when cliff jumping into the med. We were "in the shot". Sorry Selena.
