my career (in a nutshell)


college life

I graduated from American University in Washington, DC with a BA in Public Communication (with a focus on PR and Journalism).

My dream was to work in the music industry following internships at 99.1 WHFS FM, Z104 FM, Mix 107.3 FM and Sony Music.


hr life

In 2007, I was hired as the first (and only) HR Manager at youth marketing agency MRY (formerly Mr. Youth) – one of Inc. 500’s “fastest growing private companies in America” (2007) and Mashable’s “social media agency of the year” (2009).


social media career

From 2009-2014, I worked as a freelance Social Media Strategist, and here are some highlights:

- I launched social media platforms for the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, including the Daytime Emmy Awards

- I had a client-facing role at Billboard, handling social media content strategy for the Billboard Music Awards’ Milestone Award, presented by Chevrolet

- I worked with a team of social media strategists on the launch strategy for Xbox 360 Kinect

- I managed social media platforms and campaigns for Bordeaux Wines, Leica Camera and Time Warner Cable


From 2014-2017, I worked full-time at Billboard, the world’s largest music brand (by digital traffic and social reach) and ranked “No. 1 U.S. Brand” and “No. 1 U.S. Publisher” on Twitter (2015).

I was responsible for creating content across social media platforms and audience development.

I also pitched content ideas to the newsroom based on trends, covered live events (from daily artist visits to the Grammy Awards), produced monthly reports, contributed stories, and took on a dual-role at after Billboard acquired SpinMedia.
