I am a left-handed, right-brained enthusiast of all things outdoors, with over 20 years of experience in marketing operations strategy, integrated eCommerce, and emerging data and tech platforms.
Today, as a solution partner for global agency Wunderman Thompson, I work with clients and client teams on select accounts such as Dell, Ford, Microsoft, and UnitedHealth Group. This consultative role unpacks client marketing operating model challenges and develops solution strategies in collaboration with practice leads spanning technology, data, analytics, CX, social, CRM, ABM, app dev, media, and commerce.
Previously, I led or worked with offering development teams, and partnerships with Salesforce, Adobe, Amazon, and LinkedIn, to create maturity model-based solutions for B2B and B2C clients.
Early career experience includes helping scale start-ups and publicly traded technology companies that develop and market eCommerce platforms and biometric technologies.
Speaking engagements include the Seattle Interactive Conference, OMMA, CA World Technology Conference, and advisory board member for the iMedia Commerce Summit, and have been published in various industry communications including The Huffington Post, Ad Age, The Drum, Contagious, Campaign, Digiday, VentureBeat, and The Next Web.
Living just north of Chicago on Lake Michigan, most weekends I’m outdoors, on the water, or out on a motorcycle ride to Lake Geneva thinking about ways to build the ultimate paddleboard.
Currently, I’m most excited about researching what drives the development of human resilience to adversity, and designing a methodology to improve our performance in response to challenge, which I believe plays a key role in realizing our full potential.
