I'm the Communications & Training Coordinator at The Vernon Company in Newton, Iowa. My main focuses are internal communication, customer communications, new technologies, relationship building, social media, branding and identity, website management, and of course, training and education.
I've become addicted to the promotional advertising industry and love that I'm working for a company that allows me to explore my passion for communication, marketing, branding technology and social media.
I'm a Minnesota native who decided to attend a small private liberal arts college (Go Bulldogs!) in the middle of Iowa. Upon graduating in 2008, I made the decision to stay in Iowa. I describe myself as skeptical, independent, fiery, energetic, passionate, original, courageous, commanding, confident, insightful and funny.
I'm all about living life to the fullest and spending time with those closest to me. At the top of my ever extending list of interests are reading (I have a goal to read at least 52 books this year) sports (hockey, football and college basketball) and traveling (hitting all 50 states is on my bucket list).
