Assistant -- Experiential Brand Marketing, Retail

I jumped into Retail Marketing without knowing much of what I was getting into and a PR background. Now that I'm in the thick of it, I'm really learning every day. We run fully-functioning retail spaces for an international technology company as well as the marketing both inside and in the communities around the retail locations.

We aim to make the most memorable experiences for consumers, rather than superficially pull them in.

Instead of saying "I don't have time" try saying "it's not a priority," and see how that feels.

Loyola Marymount University

Economics, B.A., Economics

As a lone ranger from the east coast, I moved to LA thinking I wanted to study the Music Industry, then Communications, but wound up on the opposite end of the spectrum at Economics.

My Economics training ended up being the perfect fit. I love to learn, am overly analytical, and somewhat of a math nerd. Economics allowed me to flourish in those aspects but allowed me to thrive in my other passions: environmental sustainability, behavioral economics, and buyer behaviors.

Delta Gamma Fraternity

I joined the Epsilon Zeta chapter of Delta Gamma as a Freshman in the Spring of 2012. It all sounds so cliche but, it gave me the home away from home I was looking for, the strong bond with a network of smart, supportive and inspiring women I was looking for, and the outlet for leadership I was looking for.

Brand Communications Intern

This was my first experience working with internationally recognized clients who want much more than just to be connected to a notable publication or a newsworthy celebrity. I loved the challenge working for 3 amazing clients - one tech, one automotive, and one lifestyle brand. I was able to grow tenfold in my knowledge, experience, and inspiration to innovate in the world of communications and marketing.


Alta Moda Communications


This being my second experience as a Fashion PR intern, I felt like I got the hang of things a bit more and was able to appreciate it for what it really was -- influencer PR and marketing strategy. We worked with top celebrities all over the world to promote our clients at all the biggest red carpet events.

Deitch PR


This was my first experience seeing the fashion industry from the inside out. The inner-workings fascinated me and the concept of trends, their ebb and flow all controlled by some invisible hand of the fashion gods, is what got me hooked.
