Almost a decade ago, I started my career on the corporate agency scene in Portland, Oregon, working with national fitness and lifestyle brands. And while I soaked up every bit of knowledge I could in the early years of my career, it didn't take me long to realize that “traditional agency life” wasn't working.
Success was measured by our ability to upsell clients on services they didn't always need, we billed projects in 15-minute increments, and my performance was based on my total billable hours, not the quality of my work. Long story short? I hated the way I was serving clients.
Fast-forward a couple of years to where I found myself managing communications for a local nonprofit. It was my favorite job. But also where I learned the most important lesson in my career: You can find a balance between purpose and profit. I started Coffeehouse Communications from a deep-rooted belief that there was a better way to serve my clients and the world around me, while telling stories that really mattered.
Away from the office, you can find me sipping my way through Portland's many wineries, breweries and coffee shops, or spending time outside with my partner our tenacious corgi pups.
The professional details? I'm a graduate of the University of Oregon with degrees in public relations and journalism, as well as a minor in creative writing. I'm honored to hold certifications as a Professional Certified Marketer (PCM®) with the American Marketing Association as well as a Certified Digital Marketing Professional with the Digital Marketing Institute.
