Paid Media Coordinator
I am data-driven and focused on staying true and human in every campaign I work on. Whether I am working in paid search ads or hosting friends at my home for dinner, I like to focus on how the end user perceives and experiences everything. I always want to give the best experience possible.
When I’m not working on brand positioning or writing ad copy, I am baking cookies, reading Tim Ferris books, going to Disneyland, and looking for the best eats throughout Southern California.< Back
