Career Footsteps

I graduated from Loras College with a BA in Business Management. I spent a few years marketing services for the architecture & engineering industry. I put on my thinking cap again, and went back to school for my Masters in Marketing. After earning my MBA from Saint Xavier University, I taught as an adjunct faculty member for the school. Currently, I'm working as a Social Media Coordinator for FatWallet.

Social Media Influencer

In the old age, there was AOL's instant messenger. Personally, that was the only social media I knew growing up. When I came home from my study abroad program in 2005, my friend screamed "We have Facebook!" Huh? What's Facebook? Well fast forward a few years, and the social media presence is completely different! Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, Google+, Pinterest - all equally exciting outlets to engage with others. Lucky for me, I get to learn more every day at FatWallet.

Personal life

I grew up on the south side of Chicago, and recently relocated to Rockford, IL. I have a big Irish heritage, and even spent a semester studying in Dublin, Ireland. In line with that, I love to travel. I've seen some pretty cool places so far! This past October, I married my fiancé of eight years in sunny Florida. I like to be active, read on my Kindle Fire, go to concerts, drink wine with my girlfriends, and try to be Martha Stewart with craft projects (kudos to Pinterest).

Enough about me, Let's get Connected!
