Bold MarCom Professional | Omnicompetent Polymath
My ideal partnership would be with a company that is also bold, highly motivated, and interested in growth. Innovation and integrity are a priority.
I am not married to a particular style of marketing or industry "voice". My most valuable skill is my natural ability to strategize for the big picture which is strengthened by the diversity of my sales and marketing skills/experience overall.
Despite official titles, many roles have also inadvertently functioned in a Chief of Staff capacity in Marketing; contributing to overall company strategy, synergy, goals, messaging, and tasks in all multiple departments.
