Originally born and raised in Central IL, I enjoyed the best of both rural and suburban living. My family's extensive farming background afforded me the opportunity to develop a strong appreciation for such Midwestern values as hard work, high standards, moral principles and a friendly, positive attitude. I also gained humble confidence, patience and a true understanding of teamwork through my love of extracurricular activities like basketball, track, water sports and horseback riding.
While attending the University of Kentucky in Lexington, I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of Communications and Information Studies with a major in Mass Communications and a minor in Spanish. Since, I have advanced my skills through an array of professional positions focusing on email marketing, web content management, SEO website copywriting, website design, social media management, event management and sales, as well as through internships delving in digital marketing, journalism, sports marketing, public relations and traditional advertising.
After twelve years as a Lexington, KY resident, I made my most recent move to Denver, CO in 2014 to relish in new adventures. I hope to establish solid roots in the area through a long term, local career within the realm of digital marketing.
