Grit. Determination. Leadership. Those are the words that I have been told describe me. Growing up in Wauwatosa, WI, I always searched for a challenge and pushed myself to succeed. For example, while studying Communication Arts at Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, I kept busy by performing in the university orchestra, captained the women’s soccer team (Go Wolves!), and was a student ambassador in the ‘Stritch Office of Admissions.
I fell in love with admissions, so when I graduated I transitioned to a full time position in the office. I grew through the ranks, eventually becoming the Associate Director of Admissions. After nine years, I left Stritch and became the Director of Recruitment and Admissions with the School of Pharmacy at Concordia University Wisconsin.
After a few years at Concordia, I decided that I wanted to explore other options where I could use my knowledge of higher education to help other institutions. During my time at Cardinal Stritch and Concordia, I partnered with Magellan Promotions on a number of promotional product projects. So when a position became available, I reached out to the team and eventually joined the company.
In my role as an Account Manager, I provide product solutions to clients in Wisconsin, Florida, Indiana and many other states. I enjoy using my higher education expertise, customer service skills, positive attitude and creative problem solving mindset on all of the projects I get involved in.
