I would love a chance to be a part of your creative team! If you are looking for a, late-working, on-timing, below-budgeting, overnight-FedExing, hard-charging, clutch-saving, coffee-chugging, pop-culture changing individual that can be assertive, highly motivated and enjoy being an integral member of a team and more. Look no further; you found her. I am all those things and so much more. I once risked life and limb, nearly getting arrested to make sure an overnight-FedEx for History’s Hatfield’s and McCoy’s wasn't missed, but we can talk about that when you call.
As you will see from the attached resume, I have worn many of different hats. As a production manager and marketing director I have run the marketing gamut. From e-blasts, public relations, event planning, celebrity handling and promoting to web marketing, copywriting, video and print production, you name it, I have done it. Around these hills I have always been known as the person who could do anything and everything (trust me if I do not know something it will not be for long. I love to learn new things and can do so very quickly). Hats I have worn included copywriter, researcher extraordinaire, design guru and my favorite – "right arm" as my boss at the time said, “You leaving makes me left handed… and I’m not a lefty!”
Most organizations I have worked for are small companies where everyone has to pitch in, and I thrived on the excitement of being involved at every level of every project. No matter where I have been, I have produced topnotch work because I am dedicated to making sure each and every piece stands out from the crowd. Whether it is promotional work for external clients or internal corporate communications strategies and team building, I pride myself on my ability to recognize and articulate a distinct voice for every project. I have also designed and produced unique promotional materials for various performing artists, local and national businesses and more.
While graphic design is my passion, currently, production management is my bread and butter. Keeping on top of projects and making sure all parts get to the finish line at the same time is one thing I do best. Now, the ability to juggle projects and never missing a deadline did not just develop through my professional experience. It also comes from my earlier years as a West Virginia University Extension Camping Instructor. There, each week I would be in charge of managing over 100 children between the ages of 7 and 21 as well as different staffs, ranging in size from 20-40 people all over the State of West Virginia. Needless to say I learned to budget my time and my assets, and most importantly, I have learned to be flexible and to get things done.
I know what you are thinking – “Why does a West Virginia girl want to pack up everything and move to Colorado?” For years I have called Colorado "the promise land". I love the outdoors almost as much you'll love having me work with you.
Having graduated Marshall University with my Masters in Mass Communication, means it is time for me to stop dreaming of the “promise land” and wake up in it!
