Where are you from, and where do you currently reside?
Chicago originally, but moved around as a kid. Currently in Omaha Nebraska.
What will be your job title at GiveSignup, and what will be your responsibilities?
As a Marketing Associate I will be focused on the creative ways customers use GiveSignup technology to improve their events. I’ll help with a number of different marketing activities, with an emphasis on creating written content.
Please share additional details about your past work experience, your education and/or training, and any notable professional skills.
I’ve worked in startups and software companies for the last seven years or so. I started in customer service but have been in marketing for a little over four years.
What are you most looking forward to in joining the GiveSignup team?
Getting to know the team and collaborating to tell great stories and help bring more awareness to the awesome product y’all have created.
Tell us about your hobbies and interests, and what you like to do for fun outside of work.
I’m a little boring I suppose. I play some instruments, so I like doing that. I also enjoy reading and I started golfing (poorly) a couple years ago.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
Semi about me, but my whole immediate family is left handed. People tend to get a kick out of that.
