My 15+ year career has spanned both very tactical and very strategic roles. In my early experience as a creative designer and web developer, I designed logos, letterheads, advertisements, custom promos, and emails for targeted national campaigns. Being naturally inquisitive, I taught myself
Most recently, I headed up the product marketing efforts for a technology services company where I successfully launched a SAAS product with $2 million in launch year revenue, trained an international sales force, developed customer feedback systems, and worked to streamline product development. I also helped co-found Fair Treasure, a subscription box service that partners with mostly women run cooperatives from around the world to deliver beautiful handmade goods to monthly subscribers. As a co-founder, I developed the marketing strategy, while learning
Shopify LIQUID and
JSON to develop the site and
SQL to simplify complex subscription processing.
I'm an avid photographer, with work published in a book entitled Wedded Perfection: Two Centuries of Wedding Gowns as well as the cover and several articles in the WORD magazine, a national publication. Having lived in Central America as a teenager, I speak Spanish fluently, and love to travel. I have climbed to the top of ancient Mayan pyramids (where the end of Star Wars was filmed), driven a taxi through the jungles of Belize (barely escaping the Guatemalan border patrol), developed and lead spring break trips to work at orphanages, and backpacked through Greece and Turkey.
One of my earliest jobs was working as a producer on a national cooking show which fueled my love of cooking (that, and Alton Brown's scientific explanations). I also love music, and play several instruments including the violin, guitar and drums, and sang semi-professionally in college. Today, my singing career has been limited to the shower.
