Unique, Fully-Integrated Marketing Strategies

 

To develop an influential consumer experience, you first have to live it yourself. For over 15 years, I have honed my skill set to effectively and efficiently build lifestyles around brands that consumers instantly relate with and buy into. Earning the respect of my peers through my passion, willingness (and ability) to learn and work ethic, I have been entrusted to create brand activation, marketing strategies and engagement platforms for companies such as Forté Foundation, Dana, Inc., MotorTrend, SportFive, MAHLE, Mr. Gasket, Walker Evans Racing, Casey Currie Motorsports, Nancy Lieberman Charities, Trans Am Racing Series, F4 U.S. and FR Americas.

Beyond my expert capabilities, is my vast network of media outlets, professionals, influencers, companies and event promoters that are invaluable in creating a fully-integrated marketing experience. Also, I am currently a board member of the SEMA Businesswomen’s Network which directly influences the Automotive Aftermarket industry.

There is nothing more exciting than to create the next big thing—I am looking for opportunities that present unique chances to be a foundational part of an influential platform. The combination of my dedication, experience, network and vision makes me an ideally-suited partner.
