Ambitious, detail-oriented marketing-communications and client management professional seeking to make a difference with a progressive organization that promotes innovation, creativity and accomplishment. Energetic go-getter eager to match her proven expertise with her passion for cycling, running, fitness and the outdoors. Ready to move to the West Coast to be a part of the sports, outdoors and fitness scene. I understand brands, what motivates customers and how to craft messages that inspire people to take action. I have been successful in a variety of domains, but know that now is the time to put my talents to use in an industry that is truly meaningful to me. I am ready to put my passions to work for a company that believes in its brand. I am a capable communicator who is able to understand and connect with people of all backgrounds, ages and interests. I adeptly combine industry knowledge, market trends and analyses of consumer mindsets to define business needs -- and turn that into marketing strategies and tools that work. I have planned, developed and/or directed the creative for websites, brochures, advertisements, press releases, e-communications and complete brand identity packages. I enjoy high volumes of varied work and rely upon strategic planning and project management skills -- and common sense -- for optimal results. I embrace change, working on all levels of projects and challenging myself and colleagues toward excellence. I am not afraid to work hard, and I am willing to do what it takes to make a difference.
