As an analytic marketeer, I pride myself in supporting my work with facts and statistics. Marketing can always be measured. I am hard-working and goal-oriented. High levels of organization is the only way I operate. I stay informed and always try to implement the most effective and cutting-edge marketing techniques available, as fitting to my company.
I graduated from Oklahoma City University with a B.A. in Mass Communications - Advertising and Graphic Design.
I am a transplant from Detroit, and have been an Oklahoma City resident since 2007. I am very passionate about the arts, community development and small business. My husband and I live with our schnauzer in a historic pocket in NW Oklahoma City.

National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum
Senior Marketing Manager (2011 - 2017)
In 2011, I stumbled upon an opportunity to blend my passion for the arts with small business when I was offered a job as a Retail Marketing & Website Strategist for The Museum Store at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. I grew the store's web presence from 800 products to 2,500 sold online. During the first three years of my work, online sales grew from less than 1% to 7% of total store sales. In late 2014 I had been assigned to broader Museum projects including a redesign and relaunch of the Museum's website. In July of 2015, I was officially promoted to Digital Marketing Manager for the whole Museum. Less than a year later, I was promoted again to the title I currently hold: Senior Marketing Manager. I currently oversee all print and digital advertising, public relations, and other strategic communications initiatives.
