Where You’ll Find Me
Celebrating a rare champagne moment in 2020: I’m thrilled and grateful to join the fight against invisibility as VP Group Strategy Director at The Martin Agency this week!
Earlier this year I committed to spending more time mentoring others and gave myself the title of Chief Visibility Officer for women, POC, and LGBTQIA+ talent in advertising — and I couldn’t have found a better match in an agency that’s working so hard to fight invisibility.
❤️ If you are so inclined, please give my LinkedIn post some love — would appreciate your likes and comments to boost visibility!
Thank you for the support!
