I’ve worked in marketing my whole career. I’ve worked at agencies, ran agencies, owned my own agency and naturally am somewhat proud to brag on a long list of innovation, ROI and digital awards. (happy to share if you want more)
I’ve worked in consumer, healthcare, B2B, government and not-for-profit. Worked in Europe and across North America; launched numerous first-in-class digital campaigns and also handled countless traditional marketing programs.
All that stuff has helped me become who I am now.
