About me

Self-directed leader with excellent communication, organizational, and project management skills. Proficient in digital and traditional media. Ability to juggle multiple projects while keeping within a tight budget and schedule. Able to work under pressure in a highly organized and professional manner. Highly trustworthy. Experience with Microsoft Office, CS5, InDesign, Adobe Acrobat, Hubspot, Google Analytics, Workamajig and familiar with many file types.

I began my career in advertising twenty five years ago in the accounting department of famed New England agency, McDougall & Associates. Although I was very good with numbers, the pace was a bit slow for me so I quickly switched gears into the traffic and production departments, and I have never looked back. Since leaving McDougall, I have served as traffic supervisor, production manager, senior account executive and strategist at Arnold, Boathouse, BrownWright and Company and Brandigo (formerly Aloft Group). As Brandigo's current Vice President of Operations, I am responsible for overseeing the day-to-day scheduling, budgeting and process for all of Brandigo's clients. Over the years, I've lent my expertise to some of today’s leading brands, Celebrity Cruise Lines, Good Year Tire, Nuance Communications, Progress Software, Parametric Technology Corporation, CSC, Schneider Electric and Waters Corporation among them.
