Curious and creative, I enjoy research and new projects. I’m driven by the need to understand the sociological aspects of business such as consumer insights or organizational behavior. So whether I’m working on a web development team to find which user experience is best or figuring out how to motivate a team of volunteers, I’m analyzing the most logical solution from a people-first perspective.

I’m a well-rounded individual who is perfectly happy pouring over new data or mentoring new team members. I enjoy collaborative work environments and juggling numerous projects.

Currently, I serve as the Philanthropy VP for the MBA Association, the Marketing VP for the Crosby Analytics Society, a Crosby MBA Student Ambassador and the Co-Event Lead for Cole County Relay for Life.

In the past, I’ve been a Digital Projects Coordinator, helping Central Missouri Newspapers to launch Front Page Digital. Our core mission was to help small and medium business owners create a digital presence. I helped to educate the marketing staff on digital media and train them to sell it via lunch and learns and four-legged calls.

In 2011 I graduated cum laude from theMissouri School of Journalism with a Bachelors in Journalism, emphasizing in Strategic Communications. I also received minors in Psychology and Business, as well as a Multicultural Certificate.

During college, I was also a Diversity Peer Educator, co-facilitating diversity related discussions for various classes and groups around campus, and an editor/columnist for the student newspaper.
