Summary

After completing my undergraduate degree at Purdue University and attaining a second degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology, I relocated back to Southern California where I began working with LF Stores as a Stylist and Marketing Manager then made the jump to Wet Seal to pursue social media full time. I have had many successes at Wet Seal such as partnering with Awesomeness TV to develop The Intern, a YouTube series documenting life as an intern at the Wet Seal corporate offices as well as starting a social following for the company’s newest venture, plus size division Wet Seal+, to the tune of almost 100,000 followers within the first five months. I am now managing the global social media strategy and content for Kingston Technology where I recently completed a campaign for SXSW that garnered almost 12 million impressions across Instagram and Twitter alone.
