Where do you work and what is your role there?
I work in the national office for BKD CPAs & Advisors as the Social Media & Digital Analytics Associate.
What attracted you to AWC?
I have a goal of seeing 100 inspirational female speakers over the next six years, and AWC monthly meetings seemed like a natural fit to help me achieve that goal.
What is your business goal this year?
To create a sustainable and successful paid advertising plan for our firm to transition advertising from print to digital.
What word best describes you?
Ambitious. I’m driven towards achievement, and enjoy the challenge of pioneering new methods, ideas, and technologies.
What is your motto in life?
The stone cutters creed holds a special place in my heart, and has been my driving force for the last 5 years.“When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” —Jacob Riis
What are you most proud of?
As a recent college graduate, I’m most proud of my All-American award for intercollegiate speech & debate. This award was particularly meaningful since our organization put a heavy emphasis on philanthropy in addition to academics and competitive ranking.
What are your hobbies?
I’m a bit of a podcast addict, but when I’m not listening to Freakonomics, NPR, or The Journal, I’m probably making friends with the dogs in my apartment building, or watching HBO’s newest series.
What was the last book you read?
I’m currently working through The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry.
