— About Me —
Experience counts for a lot! I’ve enjoyed a successful career in Advertising and Marketing for many years, in both an agency, corporate in-house, and sole-proprietor role. My career has taught me to be a self-starter, thorough and accurate, and a excellent communicator, and problem solver. I’m a diligent, passionate worker, who has enjoyed the marketing challenges of building some of Wisconsin’s most prominent brands. I’ve managed teams, budgets, and developed sales throughout my career. I have kept up on marketing channel trends, and their technology throughout my career. My work has garnered numerous district, regional and national advertising excellence awards.
