FCB Global

Leo Burnett Chicago
Chicago, United States
October 2009 - June 2015 (5 years 8 months)
I came to Chicago to lead an agency. Instead, the agency led me. 1500 people in one building is a powerful resource and I learned the truth behind the saying, "a good idea can come from anywhere." I learned to value true partnership because of Rich Stoddart. And I was pushed to a better place by Mark Tuttsel, Tom Bernardin, Nina Abnee, Mick McCabe, Amy Cheronis, Debbie Bougdanos, Annette Corcoran and Bill Hickman to name a few. The creative leads and their teams inspired me to think about art & commerce in new ways. And Anne Beebe kept it all in perspective. A five year master class in marketing and advertising.


BBDO New York
New York, United States
June 1985 - September 2009 (24 years 3 months)
I started as the "bathroom break girl" in 1985. I took that job as seriously as the ones that would follow. Someone asked me if it had been my ambition to become a creative leader in this business. I said my ambition had always been to just get started. Every promotion was just another start to a new job. Jr. Copwriter, Copywriter, Group Creative Direcctor, Executive Creative Director. Along the way I learned from the best. Phil Dusenberry. Charlie Miesmer. Ted Sann. Allen Rosenshine. Michael Patti, David Lubars. Andrew Robertson. I remained a student until the day I left.
