I’m currently working at Intel in Digital Marketing as a digital marketing strategist. Prior to my role at Intel, I worked at Allstate Insurance where I pioneered their use of social media. I started their first community, blog and Twitter channel. I once teased Dennis Haysbert that I was the voice of Allstate on Twitter. I don’t have his voice, but I was responsible for social customer service, plus I hosted a weekly Internet radio show featuring car and driving tips for women.
I completed my Master’s degree at the University of Missouri with an emphasis in rhetoric and composition. My thesis was on digital literacies, and my research interests spanned network rhetorics, new media/digital composition, and how teachers and students can use social technologies for teaching and learning.
Prior to finishing my MA, I managed e-mail marketing and web development for Southern Methodist University, was a project manager at Verizon.com, and even before that was one of five interns to design and develop GTE’s first integrated HR Intranet.
I am insanely curious. In my spare time, I attempt to collect as many airline miles and hotel points as possible. I love the outdoors, motorcycling, and living each day to the fullest.
I aspire to have one adventure after the other, take on new learning opportunities, and experience as much of the world as possible.
You’ll find me on all the usual social channels. Let’s connect.
