authentic, strategic, and
a supernova of energy
I was in my 20’s in “startup heaven”, Silicon Valley, California. At my first job, as employee number five, I was tasked to set up worldwide distribution channels for this incredible new device, the computer mouse, retailing at a whopping $449. After two wild weeks driving across 13 countries in Europe, I negotiated sales and signed major distributors, learning gobsmacking life lessons along the way.
With each new job in the exploding tech sector that followed, I discovered I had a pronounced communication gene. It showed up when I helped software developers see that bundling mice with computers had value, or when thrilling an audience over an industry-first graphics card.
This was noticed by WordTech Systems, Inc. and I was hired to develop the company’s first marketing and sales plan, manage a staff of 28+ people and create standards to grow a healthier work culture.
The next lesson learned was that companies can be insanely volatile. After only months at a company that courted me for five years, this start-up fired its entire marketing department at an early morning breakfast meeting.
Our company grew from tech to service clients in multiple sectors; from nonprofits to retail, from animal welfare and youth support organizations to global logistics and the Royal Scottish Dance Society.
We’ve become a trusted agency, creatively driven and reknown for synergistic programs and meticulously managed projects.
I also continue to serve on a number of Boards.
