I graduated from Central Michigan University with a journalism degree – but I never wanted to work at a newspaper. I wrote content for a higher education Web site – but I didn’t know a lick of HTML. Now I’m a Marketing Communications Specialist for a financial company – and not only am I not a numbers person, but I always thought “marketing” was just another word for “sales.” Guess I was wrong.
Here’s the thing – I love to tell stories. I love to talk to people and find out why they do the things they do. And I like finding where other companies succeed – and fall flat – doing the same to me.
When I’m not working I’m probably cooking, laughing with my husband, attempting to discover a love for exercising, reading a book or talking to my mom or twin sister – who is married my husband’s brother. I live in Grand Rapids, Mich. and could not love it more.
