I head up our PR team. I believe in a strong brand foundation built on research, and in using integrated marketing to bring your brand to life with paid, earned and owned media working together like Beyonce’s backup dancers.

I’m a creative person who likes timelines and spreadsheets. Every element of the marketing mix brings something unique to the table and I can talk your ear off all day about building strategic campaigns across the globe using media relations, social media, influencers, consumer outreach and corporate communications.

When I’m not working with the amazing team at TimeZoneOne, you can find me and my husband chasing our daughter and our dog around Chicago, trying a new restaurant or spending time with my awesome family.

I grew up and went to school in Illinois but lived in Cleveland, Ohio for 15 years before recently moving back to Chicago and have been enjoying reacquainting myself with my hometown.
