About me…I am a true veteran of the digital space with 18 years of digital agency experience...in project management, account management and digital / social strategy. Peruse my resume and you will see… In my role at Ogilvy I oversaw social media and content strategy for the SC Johnson business, a team comprised of 10 social strategists, content creators and community managers and across 9 brands in NA and Internationally; At Weber Shandwick I oversaw the creation of the first content marketing, social media command center, garnering nearly a dozen awards and providing the case study that would grow the content marketing practice across the entire agency; At Razorfish I led a massive digital future visioning strategy and roadmap project for State Farm, which in addition to helping to secure a record-breaking 25MM retainer for the agency, aimed to predict digital behaviors 3 years into the future to help State Farm in their goal to leapfrog the competition from a mobile/social/digital perspective; At Band Digital I successfully relocated and rebuilt the flagship Harley-Davidson business, launching the first social/digital programs for Dark Custom, Harley Women and Harlistas; and at Leo Burnett I oversaw the digital production group at Arc Worldwide, personally managing the multi-million redesign of the GoArmy.com website, increasing leads by 41% in a year. At the core I believe I can do anything. Not because I am any smarter than the next guy (gal), because I know I am not. I build teams and connect people to tools and tools to people. I will walk through fire to get the job done. I’m crafty and relentless in my process. I navigate and figure things out. I create relationships based on trust and authenticity. Boredom is my enemy. I’m driven to win and that passion comes across in everything I do – from developing digital strategies – to managing my teams – to growing business with fresh, new ideas – and everything in between, big and small.
