Director of Marketing & Events
Joined the Chamber Staff:
Role at the Champaign County Chamber:
I am responsible for creating all marketing materials for the Chamber (printed, digital, website, social media, emails, etc.) and I plan most of the events throughout the year. Although certain times of the year can be busy depending on what events we have coming up, I really enjoy doing both and feel like the combination allows me to really play into all of my strengths.
Favorite childhood book(s):
I have always loved the Percy Jackson and the Olympian books by Rick Riordan.
My guilty pleasure for food will always be chocolate. I don't think I go a day without eating some kind of chocolate.
Favorite Chamber event/program:
Annual Meeting is by far my favorite event. It is such a fun celebration of our membership and all of our accomplishments throughout the year. This is also the event where I get to be the most creative and really come up with a fun/unique theme each year.
If you could possess any super power what would it be?
My super power would be teleporting. Then I could travel the world at the snap of my fingers.
Rock, Paper, or Scissors?
What’s on your iPod/phone?
My music taste is all over the place. I can go from listening to country music all the way to Disney music like "Let it Go."
What is the best advice you have ever received?
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think!
