Hi! It's nice to meet you!

About Me

All the tidbits you can't glean from my resume

I work at the intersection of digital advertising, product, engineering, branded content, and sales teams. It is often messy to ensure technology in advertising plays nicely together while working horizontally across an organization. Like a moth to a flame, I'm drawn to this particular type of chaos. There's always room to innovate and help inspire constant improvement. I currently work within the Innovation Incubator at Insider as a Revenue Products Manager.

I spent 12 years working at brands & publishers such as Major League Baseball, Vice Media, USA Today, and Washington City Paper. On buy side I helped oversee advertising technology so clients can reach their target audience and achieve the best return on their media spends. On the publisher side I helped fulfill more online display, video, and mobile campaigns than I'd like to remember.

After completing the Front-End Web Development course at General Assembly in 2015, I've been using my coding skills to get sites like this one up and running.

In my free time you can find me hanging out with my husband and two children at the start of the Hudson Valley in Northern Westchester. I still have a giant fiber and fabric collection waiting for the day I have free time to return to it. I helped write a book on how to start a DIY business which you can buy here if you are so inclined.
