I graduated from Illinois State University cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in Business Administration. Through conducting undergraduate research and analyzing data I developed valuable critical thinking and problem solving skills. I applied these skills in a business setting when I served as the marketing director for a local corporation. During this endeavor I implemented marketing strategies in an array of mediums, including email, direct mail, various social media, and relevant Internet platforms. Additionally, I facilitated all collaboration between marketing agencies and my client, ensuring effective communication, follow-through, and outcome.
As a Broker Associate with Baird & Warner I am able to leverage my marketing and research skills to ensure I am bringing my clients the most fitting and evidence-based strategies available.
