I started exploring cities and traveling at a really young age, inspired by my Grandfather, who had epic stories of the road from his time as a Broadway and traveling stage actor. I do now for work what I would do if I wasn’t working: get to know places inside and out. And, when I’m not working, I am lugging my wife and three daughters all over Denver and the western U.S.
A passion for compounding the value of marketing, business development and branding, has afforded me the opportunity to travel the globe and view the world through different lenses. Through my experiences I've learned that business is about doing MORE with LESS and business decisions are ultimately made based on competing satisfactions.
My first memories were crafted on the islands of the Philippines and on the island of Guam but my family eventually immigrated and made new beginnings in the small town of Cheyenne, WY. After High School I went on to study design and photography in Denver and spent some time road tripping up and down the west coast. I landed my first job at a digital design agency in NYC where I spent 4 years working and exploring all that the east coast had to offer. From beach houses on Cape Cod and Fire Island to Chinatown bus rides to Boston and Washington DC, I fully enjoyed the east coast but ultimately decided to move back to Denver to balance out the big city chaos and to find new opportunities.
Hailing from Northeast Ohio, I found the perfect place for me in this mountain state, and moved to Denver in 2002. I've been producing and managing successful web, video, and marketing / advertising projects for the last 15 years. I strive to have a career that makes me happy and fulfills my passion for travel, marketing, art, film, and video so working at Atlas is a great fit. I'm excited to share my passions and the Colorado mountains with my family, including a very enthusiastic and joyful two-year-old.
Originally a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I moved to Colorado in 2004. I've fallen in love with the mountains and as much as I love my southern roots, Colorado has definitely become home. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Advertising from Louisiana State University and have over 15 years experience in the agency world as a print producer, project manager, and traffic manager. I'm passionate about creating order out of chaos, allowing my teams to create the best work possible for our clients. When I'm not at work, I'm cooking, hiking, snowboarding, or singing in my band.
Having grown up in Colorado, I am one of the few natives at Atlas, and I pride myself on being an advocate for the Centennial State. Although not having moved far since childhood, I’ve journeyed to places far and wide, making my love of (new & unique) places a perfect addition to Atlas’ team of place marketing enthusiasts. Working in sales and marketing in a variety of industries for the past six years, my roles have varied, but the constant has always been the development of content – content for the web, for print campaigns, for agency and client blogs, social media campaigns, email marketing campaigns, and much more. With a passion for creating compelling content, acute attention to detail skills, and a love for engaging people through words, I really thrive as a writer, especially here at Atlas.
Director of Operations
My love of travel and seeing new places and cultures began with my journey at 3 weeks old from Modesto, California to Boulder, Colorado where I was raised. I grew up exploring the mountains with winter snow skiing and hiking, water skiing in Utah, boogie boarding on the waves of the Pacific Ocean, and traveling for school athletic events or family gatherings throughout the USA. My exploration of the world as an adult created a profound impact on my heart and soul and instilled a compassion for all cultures. Sharing life with my husband, 3 daughters, other family and friends here in Colorado and all over the world has enriched my soul and prepared me to be a wife, mom, Yoga Instructor and Director of Operations for Atlas Advertising.
