I am a proven leader with experience creating integrated digital and social media strategies across multiple sectors of business, including B2B, B2C, Investor Relations, Corporate Communications, Capital Markets, Life Sciences and others. Innovative, out-of-the box thinker with proven, measurable results. Early adopter, extremely personable and a team player. I have been using the internet to communicate since I was a child. From the first time I used the dial-up modem on my father's PC to connect to local BBSes, I was hooked. Digital communications runs through my veins and experiencing the growth of the internet from the ground up has given me a unique perspective on how people connect and the best ways to tap into those conversations.
