Director/VP Marketing with expertise working with start-up, emerging, and growth-stage brands.
Extensive experience building omnichannel global lifestyle, fashion & wellness CPG brands.
Deep understanding of brand development, with a strong design aesthetic, and tactical big picture needs.
10+ years diving head-first into building brands on both in-house and agency teams, I thrive collaborating with founders, working with innovative brands, and rolling up my sleeves to get to work.
A strategic cross-functional partner and advocate for marketing that’s balanced with emotional creative storytelling, and consumer insights, I began my career in brand marketing fresh out of school, armed with a Graphic Arts degree, and navigated my way into a marketing position with a breakthrough lifestyle start-up.
Over the course of my tenure there, I was in the thick of it and had a front-row seat during the brand's exponential growth (and eventual acquisition). This experience would lay the foundation for what I am passionate about today: building great and meaningful brands with amazing partners.
