Who are you? Please tell us a little about yourself.
I currently manage the Northeast Ohio & Central Ohio regions as an Account Executive for MNI Targeted Media. MNI is the targeted advertising division of Time Inc. and we work with clients & agencies to identify, reach, and engage their target customers through customized media plans. It’s an exciting time to be in this industry, especially the digital space. The industry is changing so quickly that it keeps you on your toes and no two days are the same!
Prior to MNI, my background has been in media, as well as sports & entertainment. I am also a proud Ohio Bobcat. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Sports Management from OU, as well as my MBA and Master of Sports Administration.
Why did you join the AMA?
I joined the AMA as an opportunity to network with other industry professionals and stay up-to-date on trends in the marketplace. For my job, it’s extremely beneficial to hear different perspectives on the industry and learn what’s important to the marketing community.
What do you love about volunteering?
I love the opportunity to meet new people and to help grow the Cleveland AMA Chapter. I also enjoy having the opportunity to welcome and communicate with our new and renewed members to keep everyone engaged and involved with such a great organization.
What are your hobbies?
You can typically find me doing something active – whether it’s Crossfit, running, triathlons, yoga, or going on walks with my crazy puppy. Being fairly new to the area, my husband and I also love getting restaurant recommendations and trying new places to eat.
What are three interesting facts about you?

- I have lived in 6 different cities – Ithaca, NY, Athens, OH, Phoenix, AZ, Washington, DC, Cincinnati, OH and now Cleveland!
