Personal Summary

Intrapreneur, strategist and growth marketer with endless curiosity and ideas. As a creative problem solver, I love making connections and drawing inspiration from unconnected situations and people. I approach my work by knowing that interdisciplinary collaboration and feedback make everything better; innovation is hard work; and empathy is essential.

My career has spanned client services, product development, creative/web dev and business operations. I'm experienced in marketing and program strategy, design thinking, facilitation, writing, storytelling, and partnerships.

My passion is solving for the future of work for women through my Future of Women Foundation (www.futureofwomenfoundation.org). My hobby is leveraging the Catskills lifestyle to increase tourism and inspire entrepreneurship, which is documented on my Brooklyn to the Catskills blog (www.brooklyntothecatskills.com).

Client experience includes blue chip clients such as Procter & Gamble, Nabisco, KPMG, and Avis Budget Group; experience across Travel, CPG, Non Profit, Publishing, Retail, Financial and B2B categories.
