Education: Northern Illinois University, BS in Marketing
Work Background/Accomplishments: While in college, I was blessed to graduate from a computer salesperson at Best Buy to a product representative and sales trainer for Hewlett-Packard. I learned a ton from those roles that helped me evolve into my career at Logical/Ocean.
Hobbies/Interests: Playing golf, football, and Frisbee. Trying new activities; in the last two years I’ve learned how to surf, wakeboard, and do trapeze. I also like to read and watch Netflix/HBO (e.g. Game of Thrones, Black Mirror). And frankly, executing/learning/teaching search engine optimization and analytics. I wouldn’t continue to do this as a profession if I didn’t think of it as a hobby. For that, I am thankful.
Describe your role at LMG/Ocean and what you enjoy about it: I direct the overall search engine optimization strategy for our client base. If I had to pick what I enjoy most, it’s the nature of how I grew into this role. Our company takes pride in recognizing and rewarding hard work. It’s equally rewarding to see this happen to folks on my team that have the same passion and dedication towards what we’re trying to achieve.
If you had to give up a favorite food, which would be the most difficult to give up? – Steak burritos from Traspasada 2 on Chicago/Ashland.
