Influencer Relations at Microsoft in Seattle, Washington
I'm a Montanan who skedaddled to Seattle.
I've spent the last decade doing communications and marketing for some awesome companies. Currently, I'm part of the Influencer Relations team at Microsoft.
Before that, I worked at Brit + Co, an online media and e-commerce platform focused on enabling creativity among women and girls. There, I helped host an annual Re:Make event in San Francisco, created a yearly report on the State of the Maker Movement, and launched a book.
Before that, I worked at Nokia, managing Internal Communications for North America. I helped launch 13 smartphones across 9 carriers in the USA and Canada. Working for a global company, I got to go to amazing places, like Abu Dhabi and Helsinki, Finland. I also helped announce the Microsoft acquisition in September 2013.
When I'm not at work, I'm traveling, shooting sporting clays, skiing when I can find the snow, trying a new sushi place or sipping some small batch bourbon. I love all things design and actually enjoy cleaning out my closet.
