As a strategist, artist, harpist, and explorer - I live and breathe a passion for life, arts, and expanding beyond all limitations. I'm always ready to abandon conventional thinking only to discover new paths and experiences.
Currently, I am a Communications Strategist at Maxus where I infuse fresh insights around technology, consumers, and media to build energy and excitement around the NBCUniversal account.
Prior, I developed my skills as a Strategist within Havas Media. Beginning as a Strategist in Chicago, I worked on media strategy for CPG brands like Reynolds, Hefty as well retail brands under Sears Holdings. Transitioning to the New York office, clients included CPG brands like NBTY and retail brands like GUESS? and NET-A-PORTER.
Additionally, I helped develop proprietary tools and visualize them in an appealing and succinct way, unveiling deeper insights of the digital landscape from a consumer view to further facilitate integration of market holistic strategy and planning.
Prior to Havas, I was an intern at Hall & Partners Market Research Firm. In that capacity, I developed a passion for working in an environment of cohesive quantitative and qualitative research with brands like Target, and tracking BP's consumer sentiment during the time of the oil spill.
Last but certainly not least, I've had the pleasure of teaching high school students harp at a Chicago Public High School School while I earned my B.A. in Marketing Communications from Columbia College Chicago. A native Chicagoan, I now call Manhattan home.
