Surprising fact about yourself: During college, I worked at an afterschool tutoring/circus program for Chicago Public school kids. Not only did I get to help a ton of really sweet and goofy kids, I learned to juggle pretty well! I’m still working on my unicycling skills – it’s way trickier than it looks!

If you had to give up a favorite food, which would be the most difficult to give up: My mom’s chicken soup

Why did you choose to work at Logical Media Group: I originally chose Logical Media Group because I wanted a skilled mentor in digital advertising. I didn’t get just one, but MANY people at Logical were so intelligent and supportive about teaching me about new best practice in the mutable digital marketing space. I’m especially grateful to the consultants and managers for aiding in my professional knowledge on SEO, PPC, CRO, and providing the best results for our clients.
