University of Wisconsin-Madison: Strategic Communications, Philosophy, certificate in leadership.
What relevant experience do you have related to your job?
My most recent experience was working for a local, start-up Wisconsin winery as the event coordinator and marketing specialist. I've also held marketing/communications positions for my alma mater, a school newspaper, and a community bank. From managing Twitter accounts, to editing news reports, to coordinating weddings, I've worked in just a little bit of everything as it relates to marketing.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
If I'm active, I'm happy. I am involved in two running clubs in the area, and I keep an avid yoga practice. As a live-in aunt, I also spend most nights playing with my baby niece. Otherwise, my favorite pastime activities include reading (crime fiction novels, mostly), attempting to teach myself to play the guitar, and watching football (Go Pack, Go!)
What is a fun fact about yourself?
I am professionally fluent in French.
What made you choose RevLocal?
Having never worked in an agency, I knew that I wanted to gain experience working for a mid-sized company. The biggest draw for me in working for RevLocal is that, despite their size, they work closely with (typically) smaller businesses and keep their clients' goals at the forefront of everything they do. I'm proud to be a strategist for a company that embraces having an active client relationship. And hey, it doesn't hurt that we are spearheading the SoLoMo - social, local, and mobile - revolution. This is a group of professionals that is dedicated to constantly adapting and evolving, and I'm humbled to be a part of it.
