I am a marketing professional with experience in email marketing, content management, web design and video production. In August, I relocated to Seattle. Currently, I am researching marketing trends while seeking an online marketing position that matches my qualifications and aligns with my values.
Previously, I worked for FTD.com, one of the largest online floral and gift retailers in the world. As the Associate Marketing Manager, I managed the planning, production, execution and analysis of daily email campaigns. Prior to this position, I worked as a Website Operations Coordinator and updated the website using the content management system. These roles highlighted my technical and organizational skills, my ability to work under tight deadlines, and collaboration with cross-functional teams.
Prior to FTD.com, I worked as a Technical Post-Production Assistant for Karl Productions, a small family-owned business that specializes in training videos, web videos, documentaries and PSAs. Our main clients included the Chicago Police Department, Chicago Park District and Chicago Transit Authority. I strategized methods to optimize results and increase efficiency in the video editing process.
As the Assistant Web Producer for NBC's daytime talk show In The Loop with iVillage, I helped revamp the online interactive components of the show. Geared toward women, topics included cooking, fitness, celebrities, parenting and fashion. I worked with producers to create web content, which promoted viewer interactivity. Also, I worked with the web team in monitoring chat rooms, updating main webpages, and making the website more user-friendly. Working in TV and web fulfilled my drive to be immersed in a creative environment.
I graduated from Bradley University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Multimedia and a concentration in Photography. Additionally, I earned a minor in Business Management and Administration.
Service is an integral part of my life. This past summer, I served as an AmeriCorps Member for Montana State Parks. I designed flyers and created press releases for park programs. The most rewarding aspect was giving caverns tours to adults and children. In Fall 2008, I volunteered at The Cornerstone Foundation in San Ignacio, Belize, Central America. While creating the Cayo AIDS Committee website, I interacted with the locals and embraced the Belizean culture. I also volunteer for local non-profit organizations that support animal rescue, forest preserves, Cystic Fibrosis and international sports.
In my free time, I enjoy rock climbing, biking, hiking, eating at local restaurants and learning about sustainable living.
