Born in Milwaukee. Trained in New York City.

I offer a wealth of knowledge from a career that includes work in marketing, public relations, and higher education recruitment. I currently lead an exceptionally creative team at a private four-year university in Milwaukee.

In our work, we collaborate with departments and academic programs to build the digital, social media, print, outdoor and broadcast marketing strategy. Our work is seen by prospective students, families, alumni, school counselors, business leaders, politicians and partnership coordinators.
