Who I Am
I am a digital and digital marketing strategist, writer and web technology geek with a passion for storytelling and creating meaningful customer experiences.
I have more than 15 years of experience managing digital marketing and communications programs for associations and small businesses in metro Washington DC, Boston and Los Angeles.
I am a superuser, troubleshooter, fan of digital business plaforms.
I endeavor to understand the application of new technologies to existing business activity and processes as well as user frustration and expectation so I can support, advocate, and build.
I am obsessed with leveraging technology to help organizations and individuals elevate their marketing strategies and accelerate their growth.
Throughout my career I have been responsible for ensuring that the digital strategy and its implementation meets the business needs of the organization. My position has always been in that sweet spot where creativity and content connect with technology and insight...that's what I love most about what I do. The possibilities in this digital age are endless and I'm thrilled to play my part.
