Chicago, United States


I make ads and I like it. From print to digital, beauty to beer, my experience leading teams and work spans across all mediums and a wide range of categories. I've spent my career telling brand stories for clients like McDonald’s, Wrigley, Clearasil, Smirnoff and Jeep.

I was recently named #4 on Business Insider's list of the 30 most creative women in advertising while
my most recent Super Bowl work for Jeep has been awarded a Super Clio, named #1 on Ad Week’s list of the 5 Best Super Bowl ads and recognized by both The One Show and Cannes Lions International Festival.
