Who am I?

A passionate and trained educator

  • Teaching is in my blood (my mom was a teacher and reading specialist for 20+ years) and to me, nothing compares to communicating a complex subject in an interesting and engaging way for students.
  • I've taught students at every age - from graduate classes, MBA students, and retired folks all the way down to elementary school. 
  • Teaching isn't just something I've picked up - I've gone through extensive training including studying pedagogy and curriculum design at the graduate level. 
  • I probably like learning a little too much, after earning a Masters in Creative Brand Management from the VCU Brandcenter (dubbed the 'Harvard of Advertising'), I earned my MBA at the top-ranked Goizueta Business School at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

An experienced professional

  • I've been lucky to have a career that's spanned client & agency-side roles, as well as multiple geographies including the US (my homeland), the UK (my home base), Europe, Canada, the Middle East & Africa, Australia, South America, and Asia. Some highlights include:
  • Helping McDonald's transform its in-store and drive thru experiences across the world
  • Working in corporate innovation at AT&T (the world's biggest telecoms company) to help launch new tech & transform their digital and retail channels
  • Work with brands like Starbucks, Adidas, Marks & Spencers (UK) and Lloyds Banking Group to create meaningful customer experiences that transcend (and connect) digital and physical channels
  • Helping make some of the world's biggest and best loyalty programs even better: AT&T Thanks, American Express' Plenti, Starbucks Rewards, O2 Priority, McDonalds' app, and many more.
