With 20 years of experience in digital strategy, marketing, and technology, across numerous industries and companies of all sizes, I specialize in bringing a unique talent of design, development, and execution skills for implementing key operational, managerial, and leadership strategies for every project I work on. My strong leadership and communication skills, and focus on culture, has driven the creation of strong teams and have made myself a trusted member of senior leadership groups.
The foundation for my professional career was built at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, where I earned an honors bachelor degree in Management Information Systems and Business Administration. After completing my degree, I started my career as a database developer in the marketing services industry where I was part of the design and development of large-scale information systems. From there my career progressed into IT project management. In 2009, I moved my focus to the digital strategy and marketing, where I helped companies like Life Time Fitness, Minnesota Timberwolves, U.S. Bank, Newell Brands / Jostens, and Homes For Heroes create digital experiences and campaigns that both produced positive results for the business and enhanced the target customer’s overall digital experience.
I have been interviewed and made appearances on TV, radio, and live streams, and am an experienced speaker and panelist on various topics of digital strategy, management and leadership.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, gaming, and can often be found on one of the many beautiful golf courses in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
