Why Ad 2? 

I originally joined Ad 2 through Public Service, as a way to build professional skills after graduating college. The sheer amount of connections and friends I've made is what's kept me in the organization after so many years. 

Whats your day job? 

Currently, I work as a Customer Success Manager at Catalina Marketing. 

What's your Ad 2/AAF History?

I joined Ad 2 in 2017, participating in Public Service. After that, I bounced around different leadership roles, including Membership Director and President of my local club, Ad 2 Tampa Bay. I joined the Ad 2 National Executive Team in 2021.

My last vacation! I love traveling to exotic places when I have the time. I'm on a quest to visit EVERY continent (I've been to 5 so far)!
