I am a brand strategist and former account executive, with over ten years in advertising, communications and innovations. I flourish on projects where I'm able to challenge cultural norms, overturn stereotypes and champion women, but my exposure to this industry and types of clients is far more extensive.
I've worked for numerous agencies and consultancies —such as Droga5, 72 and Sunny, Johannes Leonardo and Sparks & Honey — across a range of industries — from beauty, tech, social justice and finance to food & beverage, CPG and QSR. Clients include CoverGirl, SheaMoisture, Google Pixel, Indeed, Under Armour, Visa, Prudential, Chase, Google, Volkswagen, Ore-Ida (Kraft), Mattress Firm, Pizza Hut, the Transportation Security Administration, The Lawyers' Committee, Consumers Union and Conversation International, to name a few.
My expertise lies in client management, designing and conducting national and global qualitative research; uncovering actionable insights; crafting brand positionings; developing innovation and creative strategies; managing creative; developing business growth plans; managing brand and marketing campaigns; and winning new business.
Outside of work, I have contributed to diversity and inclusion programs, including teaching strategy for Droga5's D5in10 Academy; mentoring upcoming talent with Manhattan Early College School (MECA) for Advertising and the Multicultural Advertising Intern Program (MAIP); launched an internal agency diversity zine (at Droga5) called !Q; served as the managing editor for CRWN magazine's third issue, Money and Power; participated in Made in NY's creative entrepreneurship bootcamp (2018); spoke at CES 2018 about the importance of cultivating diverse talent in creative fields; and shoot and edit mini documentaries.
