I have been fortunate and worked hard to build knowledge and value with a variety of teams.

Through this pursuit, I’ve been able to better understand my preferred working environment for creativity, and my best self.

I've had a portfolio career.

On the agency side, brand side, and spaces in-between, I've specialized in digital and social media. Nearly every role was a hybrid of strategy and account management.

I've worn many hats, including content creation, community management, and paid social media execution.

I have also attended many events, conferences, and training opportunities, such as a Hyper Island Master Class on Digital Acceleration.

We then secured work in the U.S. and London to support the collaboration between Daiichi Sankyo and AstraZeneca on the FDA approval and launch of a new antibody drug conjugate treatment for metastatic breast cancer (MBC).
    • Sandoz, a global leader in generic pharma and biosimilars within Novartis, selected our team as their global communications partner across the U.S. and Europe. We support corporate and product communications, as well as their innovative work around biosimilars.

    • Lundbeck, a global pharmaceutical company focused on brain diseases, engaged us to help transition its US social media presence between an exiting Social Media Manager and her replacement. This included the creation of a the communication team's first-ever social media playbook. The playbook captured many existing processes and protocols, streamlined all aspects of social media management, and refined or created new formats for things like paid social media, measurement, and reporting. The scope was expanded to ongoing social media consultation, including content strategy and paid social media execution.

    As Social Media Manager, I helped to define, codify, and activate the brand's voice and mission across social media platforms. This included the creation of an operating playbook and structure where one did not exist previously. Social media supported recruitment, executive communications, company milestones and announcements.

    Like my role with Braintree, I once again built a social media foundation from the ground up. This included a social media playbook outlining many nuances, including channel roles and community management.

    Social content supported company milestones and news, executive engagements, events, and more.

    Primary Clients: BP America, BP Global, CDW, SC Johnson (Glade), Jack's Pizza, McGraw Hill Education, Castrol, Ice Surge

    On the social media team I wore multiple hats: serving as a planner, account manager, and strategist at once. Except for certain integrated accounts, we were typically armies of one or a few people, fulfilling the social media function and other needs.

    This role exposed me to how great social media can be structured and executed. Individual clients had a greater focus on a particular social media nuance: influencer partnerships, content creation, community management, crisis communications, and analytics.

    • Served in hybrid role as account manager, community manager, analyst, content coordinator, researcher, and planner
    • Conducted competitive, consumer, and brand analyses
    • Ongoing client media monitoring, new business development and digital strategy trends/best practice recommendations

    After working in Marketing Strategy, Consumer Product Sampling, International Account Management and Social Media, I joined the Social@Ogilvy team. I was client-facing on a variety of projects, and fully client-facing once I joined the social media team.

    • Validated SC Johnson and new business client objectives (e.g. market sizes, sales estimates)
    • Conducted social media audits, recommendations for Quintiles and Medtronic
    • Supported Associates Program efforts to engage prospective candidates and incoming hires
