My career and life have been full of plot twists!
I have gone from being a police officer, to a marketing and communications professional, to a c-level executive. I then founded my own marketing agency, which was strategically acquired 16 months later.
At present, I am an academic administrator and spokesperson for a mid-level public university. Along the way I battled a cancer diagnosis while pregnant. I have a lot of unique experiences to draw from and am full of gratitude for the colorful journey I have lived.
I balance a fun and active career with an amazing family. I’m married to a wonderful man and the momma to two young kids, Harper and Peyton.
Motherhood is a blessing and allows me a lot of great opportunities to tap into my inner child. It is amazing how many career and leadership lessons I have learned through loving and nurturing my children alongside my husband.
I start each day with a cup of coffee and quiet reflection — I like having space to think deeply and reflect with gratitude. When not working I love to read, write and run.
I also serve on the board of a nonprofit organization based in the Dominican Republic, New Hope. This dedicated and purpose-driven group rescues girls from the darkest of places and helps them establish their true identity.
Although my career and experiences have been varied, there has been a consistent theme of supporting and encouraging other women.
