My full-time role is as an account director at Publicis LifeBrands Medicus in New York.
I made my way to New York from Chicago, where I was an account supervisor at AbelsonTaylor – the largest independent health and wellness ad agency in the country. I served as the account lead for Amgen’s ENBREL dermatology health care professional team and the ENBREL rheumatology HCP team producing through-the-line work and managing ~$5 million in combined books of business.
Prior to AbelsonTaylor, I moved to Chicago to join SapientNitro. SapientNitro is recognized as the country’s largest digital ad agency with more than 11,000 employees globally. I serve as the account lead for Abbott’s web portfolio, and also worked globally, ensuring consistency and local relevance of our work across SapientNitro’s international offices.
Prior to SapientNitro I worked in account management at Bradley and Montgomery (BaM), in Indianapolis. There I managed a variety of marketing projects (chiefly digital) for seven lines of business at Microsoft, including Windows, Internet Explorer, SkyDrive, Outlook.com, Exchange, Research, and Openness.
Before BaM (BB as I like to call it), I worked with Bohlsen Group as senior account executive. As the fourth employee, I was instrumental in rapid expansion of 21 employees in just 18 months. I served as the lead in strategy and client management on non-profit, retail and corporate clients and advised a team of account executives and publicists on overall strategy and client relations. Additionally, I co-developed and managed a highly-competitive internship program and developed, managed and maintained Bohlsen Group’s digital presence.
Prior to Bohlsen Group, I managed brand promotions at Interactive Intelligence and led corporate copywriting, web content writing and demo script writing projects. I also collaborated as a lean, mean team to plan their annual conferences.
Earlier, while at NuOrbit Media, I set the strategy and user experience for award-winning websites for Hefty, Cap’n Crunch, the Eiteljorg Fellowship for Native American Fine Art and Rice-a-Roni. I also helped with strategy and creative development on numerous collateral materials.
I started this journey as a production specialist at dgs Marketing Engineers, tracking workflow and negotiating vendor relationships. I was soon promoted to account coordinator for four international B2B PR and marketing accounts.
