Graphic Design and Marketing Director
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. When I first started at the Chamber I was solely responsible for the marketing and graphic design part. About a year and half into my time here, I took over doing the events as well. 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 always really loved If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and pretty much anything by Roald Dahl.
Tacos will always have a very special place in my heart. I also believe that any time you frill food it immediately becomes 1000 times better.
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?
I always thought that flying would be a great way to get around.
Rock, Paper, or Scissors?
What’s on your iPod/phone?
My music tastes are all over the place. At any given time I could be listening to anything from Maroon 5 to One Direction to The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. It truly just depends on the day and my mood.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
Follow your heart but take your brain with you.
