Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a Michigan native who comes from a deep blue collar background. A recent graduate from the University of Toledo where I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing with a minor in Information Systems. I also have an MBA in Finance from the University of Toledo. I like to make every opportunity a learning experience. Experiencing different industries such as higher education and financial services has given me the ability to transition well into a new environment, especially since I’m early in my career.
When I’m not working, I like to establish content for my personal finance brand, spend time with family and friends, read books, travel, and live out my foodie dreams. I am a lover of new experiences and with that comes being able to have a great imagination.
What unique experiences do you bring to our team at Tackle?
My background consists of generating content that people from all walks of life can relate to. I began to develop my digital marketing skills through a series of school project work, previous marketing job experiences, and creating a brand out as a side project.
Marketing is the voice of the organization. It combines business acumen with creative processes of connecting people. As a marketer, the job comes with being able to wear many hats and the ability to multitask effectively. For me, it’s a role I am passionate about so to be here at Tackle, I can give the team a fresh perspective that’ll help us grow the organization.
What interests you in working with nonprofits?
At the heart of nonprofit work is community support. I consider myself a community-first type of person because I’m always willing to be a team player and help others succeed. When I first started to look into the nonprofit sector, I noticed a great need for people with business skills. In the nonprofit world, it’s important to have business intelligence since you cannot just run an organization on community alone. Knowing how to operate strategically is how you keep a nonprofit running. Being able to bridge a gap between community development and making good business decisions is what I’ll bring the more I spend working with nonprofits.
What are you most excited to learn in this role?
What excites me most about working here is that I get a chance to sharpen my skills as a marketer. Marketing is the first point of contact in getting clients to work with us. To use marketing skills to make an impact is always an exciting thing to do. The ability to create content that supports our company efforts is what I look forward to.
