I am always energized when I get the chance to work on big problems that require the integration technology, operations, processes, and human behavior. I’ve spent most of my career doing this in marketing, communications, and sales at Bank One/JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Nationwide Insurance and Huntington Bank.
My career has not followed a straight line, and I am incredibly thankful for this. I have experienced some unique opportunities that have enriched the way I approach my work. A few examples include:
- Taking a sabbatical year in Barcelona where I studied painting with a renowned artist, walked 500 miles across northern Spain, spent a month in Morocco, and began a life-long quest to learn the Spanish language.
- Leaving the corporate world to work at a small brand agency where I helped clients define and tell their story in a more clear, concise, and compelling manner.
- Joining a product innovation team to work on the next generation of payment systems.
- Working in the United Kingdom on a credit card start-up.
In addition to my work, I am passionate about organizations that serve people in their moment of greatest need. Over the years I have volunteered and contributed at my local foodbank, community shelter, and disaster relief agencies.
