Growing up, I always knew I would go into business just like my father. He was a VP of Sales & Marketing, and I wanted to be just like him.

After graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, I moved to San Francisco and jump-started my career in sales. I absolutely loved the energy of the city and being right in the middle of the West Coast tech hub.

During my time in sales, I supported and served many different types of businesses, both small and large. I also realized how much I love working with people, building relationships and leveraging those to directly impact both the business I am representing and the client. After a few years in sales, I wanted to go back to marketing where I could leverage my education.

I also had a desire to express my creative side. My husband, a Creative Director at the time, used me as his marketing and brand sounding board. I had a growing passion for developing product ideas and marketing strategies that resonate with the user and loved the empathy and user-centric thinking that comes with the creative marketing process.

I pivoted quickly into marketing by joining a small social donation platform startup in Silicon Valley as its first marketing hire then transitioned to a large ecommerce company where I worked with larger teams and learned what it takes to manage the complexities of national campaigns that reach thousands of users daily. I enjoyed every minute in the Bay Area, but after seven years, I moved back down to Southern California (my hometown), after my husband and I decided it was time to move closer to family.

I am beyond excited to join the Human Marketing team as the new Marketing Project Manager. I plan to bring my marketing background and love for working with people to develop and improve processes that help the Human Marketing team and their clients work better together. I will be responsible for keeping the team on track while providing our clients with organizational support on all projects — from implementation through deployment.

Behind the scenes, you will find me building and improving our workflow to ensure that we are delivering our best to clients on time.
