I am an enthusiastic and intensely-curious go-getter who is, for lack of a better word, obsessed with all things digital marketing and social entrepreneurship! I am a current MBA student with a concentration in Marketing and serve as Global Peace Building Foundation's social media coordinator. Prior to pursuing my MBA in 2014, I lived in Nashville, TN where I worked as an Account Manager for a marketing agency and a Court Appointed Special Advocate for Children. During this time, I also served as a Social Media Manager for Ohio restaurant, Food by Jane, which was right up my alley being the total foodie that I am! In addition to doing Jane's social media, I also constructed the restaurant's current website. I'm no website expert, but that entire process was a fun one!
My undergraduate education at The College of Wooster exposed me to the fundamentals of social entrepreneurship and social responsibility. I quickly learned that this concept of doing well by doing good was how I wanted to live my personal and professional life. I was fortunate enough to spend a summer abroad in Bangalore, India where I volunteered for Dream-A-Dream, a non-profit that seeks to teach life skills to underpriveledged youth through sports, creative arts, and IT. This experience with Dream-A-Dream is something I reflect upon often; I find myself thinking of ways to mold my career around my true passions: marketing, people, and service.
Having the opportunity to work in the global peace building space has exposed me to so many inspiring organizations, people, and innovations. I'm looking forward to becoming an active member of the global innovation ecosystem!
