Where is your hometown?
What school did you go to and your major?
Simpson College, Indianola, Iowa; double major in History and Secondary Education, double minor in Political Science and Economics.
What relevant experience do you have related to your job?
I like to describe my career experience as weird and wonderful. I've done all sorts of interesting things from working on educational policy legislation for a U.S. Congressman in Washington, D.C., to selling commercial and residential flooring for an independently owned shop in rural Iowa. I spent 15 years of my life deeply immersed in various aspects of the hospitality industry, including high-end fine dining service and management as well as national bartending competitions. From hospitality, I transitioned to digital technology companies in the startup space and haven't looked back!
Having a wide range of experience in vastly different businesses gives me a unique appreciation for building brands and relationships with RevLocal. I'm excited to explore what's possible as RevLocal continues to grow and push boundaries in the digital marketing space for larger brands.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
I'm a casual fitness junkie; you'll find me six days a week sweating it out with my pals at System of Strength. I also love all things food and beverage, so you'll often find me cooking or mixing drinks at home or out exploring new restaurants around the city!
What is a fun fact about yourself?
There are more than 400 unique bottles of spirituous liquor in my home. It is a collection that started with our wedding and grew through my career in professional bartending. I continue to collect new and unique spirits, single-barrel whiskeys, and other interesting finds as I travel!
What made you choose RevLocal?
I chose RevLocal because it's a company that believes in the marriage of technology and humanity. I love technology, but I believe it can't and won't exist without human interaction and support. RevLocal puts people behind our product in a big way, and I'm excited to work with a company like that!
