Role at the Champaign County Chamber:
Promoting and marketing an organization that provides valuable resources and a voice for the business community is what I do. I am responsible for branding and communicating a consistent image to all members through our online presence, marketing materials, video, publications, social media and more.
Favorite childhood book(s):
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Matilda by Roald Dahl
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
Mexican food will always hold a special place in my heart. I could literally eat tacos everyday and not get tired of them. Also anything that comes hot off of a (charcoal) grill. Grilling automatically makes food 97% better.
Favorite Chamber event/program:
Annual Meeting - from a marketing standpoint this one is definitely the most fun. Since there is always a really fun and creative theme that ties the whole thing together it is fun to plan the materials around that.
If you could possess any super power what would it be?
I always thought that flying would be a convenient and fun way to get around.
Rock, Paper, or Scissors?
What’s on your iPod/phone?
Just about anything that you can imagine. I love music and going to concerts so what I'm listening to usually depends on what kind of mood I'm in. I like anything from Maroon 5 to Eric Church to The Eagles to One Direction to Fleetwood Mac - the list could go on for days.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
To thrive in life you need three bones: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone
