There once was a gal from Southern Illinois...

My desire for creative freedom and extensive familiarity with the 405/101 interchange lead me to break free from my retail chains and into entertainment events and promotions for Warner Bros. at zakHill Group in the city of swimming pools and movie stars. After five years of straight sunshine I re-situated in Chicago and into advertising in roles of account and project management. I spent a couple of years helping steer ad campaigns at Ogilvy, where everyone assumes I lived the real life version of MadMen, but really it was just daily laughter at one of the best ad agencies in the biz. In 2014 I ventured to New York City at HUGE, stretching my project management legs in digital design, social media campaigns and startup branding and strategy as a Freelance Producer at Red Antler. Soon I found myself back in Chicago for a few years (you're cute, NYC but nah) keeping things in check as Project Manager of Brand Marketing at Superfly where Bonnaroo and Outside Lands were a required part of my job. Bummer, right? After three years of working on music festivals, I followed my heart to Nashville where I am the Senior Project Manager of all things digital marketing at a new startup that goes by the name of Centric Entertainment. We help develop entertainment brands and music artists by helping them tell their stories in impactful ways and stand out from the crowd. Also, Nashville is the best.
