How did you first learn of SMPS? What motivated you to join?

My co-worker Kim and President Eve, encouraged me to join and registered me for the UBER conference. So it technically wasn't my choice but I have loved every minute of it since joining. The members are great and so helpful.

As a new member this year, how did you become involved so fast?

I attended the UBER conference and attended the New Member Breakfast and I was able to meet so many people and make a lot of important connections.

What attracted you to a career in Marketing?

I love commerce and the psychology of why people do what they do and I fill like marketing allows be to explore my love for both simultaneously.

If you were not in this industry, what would be your “Dream Job”?

My dream job would be to work for a company that sent me around the world to test out resorts, cruise ships and vacation tours and then write reviews based on my experience.

What is the best tip you’ve been given for marketing?

The best tip I've been given for marketing isthat the size of your network is not what’s important. It’s the influence of the people within your network that counts. So it's key to build a well-connected network.

What would you consider your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement to date is having my daughter. She motivates me to be a better me, every single day. I know that my present is a direct reflection of her future.

Favorite quote or three fast facts about yourself:

"The things you take for granted, someone else is praying for."

"The expert in anything was once a beginner."

"You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have."

I love all three of these.
