Work & Leadership Experience 


I am a Corporate Communications professional with a passion for both print and digital marketing, particularly in the fashion industry. Having the privilege, through work and internship experiences, of working with clients in multiple different industries, I have experience with B2B and B2C marketing and have gained skills to manage complex projects and challenges.

My expertise is in social media, graphic design and digital editing, web design, lead generation, and marketing automation. I have executed successful marketing campaigns and content strategies and I have design experience using the Adobe Suite.

As the Marketing Coordinator at Emilcott, I am responsible for managing all of the company’s social media platforms. My accomplishments include creating the company’s first Pinterest and attaining 300 followers in two months, assisting in the implementation of two company re-branding strategies and driving 43% of traffic to website through social media initiatives. I am also gaining great experience learning to conquer search engine optimization, blogging, web implantation and marketing analytics.

As a former member of the sales leadership team at Victoria’s Secret, I have an added background in retail management and team development. I am a dynamic leader and have gained human resource skills, through hiring and training multiple levels of new sales talent.

This online portfolio includes my work and leadership experience, my skills, my relevant coarsework and project samples and links to all social media accounts that I have worked on. I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as I have enjoyed creating it!
