I’ve been in advertising since I was 15 years old. I grew up in a family where my great-grandfather and my grandfather were both sign painters, I knew my first job wouldn’t be in a GAP store or a Dairy Queen.
I started out at a local advertising agency in Phoenix, Arizona after taking graphic design courses in high school. My passion continued to grow, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design at Arizona State University and a Master of Arts in Art Direction and Account Planning at the University of Texas at Austin.
Following grad school, I started working at Young & Rubicam SF with my copywriting partner. We beat out 500 other applicants for the position at an open portfolio night we only had hours to prepare for.
Following Y&R, I was honored to work at High Wide & Handsome, Moses Anshell, and LAVIDGE. One of my most proud moments is completing my goal of being a Creative Director by the age of 30. I was the youngest Creative Director the agency ever had in that position and the first ever female.
Currently, I love working with clients and helping them take their businesses to the next level through data driven strategic thinking that leads to on brand creative ideas and executions.
