Both in NY, grew up in Atlanta, went to college in Nashville, wanted more stimulation so moved to NYC with Deloitte, wanted more education so moved back to Nashville for my MBA. I started out on the Health Care MBA track and ended up with a toy job at Mattel in Los Angeles! Once I came to California in 2010, there was no going back. I've moved around a lot to try new things and gain new experiences - and am proud and humbled by all of them.
My career began in huge corporate firms - which was great for a strong foundation. I've consistently moved to smaller and smaller companies - most recently as the Director of Marketing at a contextual data and consumer engagement startup. This was my most favorite role for endless reasons - making a huge impact, being a key decision maker, and working with fantastic people. As the company had to close its doors due to lack of funding, I understand the stress of startups, but love putting in my all with a team of equally dedicated people.
