As a Media Account Director at Reuters News Agency, I spend my days building and maintaining strategic relationships across the web, mobile, broadcast and print industry. To meet the changing market demand with innovative products and delivery platforms, I collaborate with Product, Technology and Editorial teams. My experience is in solutions consulting, customer retention and business development.
Where did it all begin? I graduated with a BA in Management of Information Systems at Texas A&M University in College Station and landed my first job in Austin during the dot com boom as a Security Analyst. I consulted with financial institutions and analyzed their infrastructure for security breaches before their internet banking servers went live. I oversaw partnerships with Cisco, Websense, RSA, EVault and Microsoft.
One item on my must-do list was to live in New York. In 2007 the stars aligned and I bought a one-way ticket to the Big Apple. I moved into an apartment on East 10th Street and accepted a position as Director of Business Development for West Corporation, a leading provider of global cloud-based unified communications and collaboration services. There I strategized with the Account Management team to customize multimedia solutions and digital marketing campaigns for Fortune 500 companies.
I am a true believer in trying out new approaches and broadening my skill set. To balance out my days and explore my creative side, I enrolled at Parsons The New School and recently completed the Certificate Program for Digital and Graphic Design. The design skills have taken my presentation game to the next level!
In my spare time, you will find me roaming around the city looking for the nearest book store, walking my dog around Hell's Kitchen, practicing my flexiblity at Bikram yoga or catching a live show at Mercury Lounge. I enjoy meeting new people and I'm always up for grabbing a cup of coffee. Please do not hesitate to connect.
