you were searching for spaghetti carbonara, go back and put quotation marks around your search terms. If you were looking for an ambitious marketing communications pro, keep reading. 

I am a corporate communications professional with many years of communications, social media, marketing and graphic design experience.

I found my passion for marketing and design after taking beginner classes in high school, which helped prepare me for my university studies. I received my bachelor’s degree in advertising and public relations with minors in marketing and visual communications from Loyola University Chicago. I obtained my master of science in integrated marketing communications in a five-year B.A./M.S.I.M.C. program offered by the university. 

Being based in Chicago, I have had the opportunity to be employed in marketing communications in leading businesses, government agencies and nonprofits. The summer before my senior year of college, I interned at Schaumburg Park District and GameTime 24x7. These learning experiences led to internships at the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago, MK Communications, Entertainment Cruises and Amble Resorts.

My professional career began when I was hired as the full-time marketing assistant at Amble Resorts. A few months later, I returned to my first internship, Schaumburg Park 
District, as the communications coordinator. I was previously a social media analyst at GE Capital, the digital communications manager at GE Transportation, a senior corporate communication associate at ZS, the social media manager at Motorola Solutions and social lead at Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.

I currently reside in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago and am happily leading social media and digital marketing at Glooko. I also lead social media and communications for Queer Tech Club.

Comic books, television, social media, lower case letters, Chicago, Instagram, marathon running and design are just a few of my passions.
