Active in the local tech community, I was recruited as the Head of Marketing and Co-Organizer for Columbus Web Group in 2015. In over three years, we more than tripled membership to over 3,000 members to make it the largest tech Meetup in Ohio.
This year, I'm helping organize the Techstars Startup Week Columbus for the Tech/Product track along with the movers and shakers of Columbus.
Prior to working at Aware, I led design and user interface development for the Spot Innovation team at Nationwide Mutual Insurance. By helping revitalize Nationwide's enterprise-wide Hackathon, we helped inspire a culture of collaboration and rapid idea validation.
By starting off my career as a consultant for Sequent, I ended up working hand-in-hand with Fortune 100 and 500 human resource departments. Soon I was promoted to do double duty and lead design for marketing while also designing and developing interactive training, organizational change management and employee engagement initiatives.
I graduated from The Ohio State University and earned a Bachelor of Arts in New Media and Communication Technology, with a focus on Human-Computer Interaction.
