NAME AND TITLE

MY TYPICAL WORKDAY

The only thing that is typical is my daily interactions with people across the agency. It’s all about communication!

HOW I CHOSE MY CAREER PATH

I knew I belonged in a business environment and marketing matched my personality and thought process the best. For me, it’s the perfect combination of creativity and data/facts.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT ASCEDIA

The culture is what first attracted me to Ascedia – everyone that I knew spoke highly of the organization. The second piece was the emphasis on digital – its no secret that’s where we are going as an industry and there are extremely smart people here doing amazing things for our clients.
