My passion for digital marketing began before I even knew what digital marketing was. In my later years of high school, I started helping small local bands set up a basic MySpace account to help them share their music and reach new ears. Who knew this would be the beginning of my journey?
I attended Fox Valley Technical College and graduated top of my class as a double major in Sales and Marketing and Business Management with an entrepreneurial emphasis. After graduation, I found myself working for various start-up agencies which became a sort of niche for me – helping fledging start-ups grow. Working for a small business allowed me the opportunity to hone my skills in a variety of areas, including sales, marketing and operations. I also had the privilege of coaching others to do their own marketing and social media by facilitating training sessions that were open to the public. Unfortunately, specializing in startups also meant adapting to a life without much for job security.
I moved around quite a bit early on, but I’m beyond happy that this journey led me to Blue Door Consulting. My areas of expertise include social media, Google AdWordsTM, search engine optimization (SEO), media buying and project management. I thrive in the fast-paced, ever-changing environment that a career as a marketing consulting brings. I love that it’s never the same day twice, and I have the opportunity to create solutions and success for clients in all industries using all the best communication channels and new technologies.
When I am not hitting the keyboard, you can probably find me on the beach, except in winter (of course, this is Wisconsin after all!). If it’s cold outside, I’ll be inside, curled up with a good Netflix.

I wanted to be a meteorologist. I like storms.
I want to see as much of the world as possible. Just maybe not Antarctica.

Thanksgiving because it’s one of the few times that entire families gather around the dinner table at the same time. It’s not about what you want or get, it’s about what you have. And the food.
I love all food.
I foster dogs. I love all the dogs.
Wine, any kind of wine.
