HOW I GOT WHERE I AM...
I started my career in design and creative media as a young high-schooler doing WYSIWYG drag and drop websites for local racing/sprint car teams using Homestead.com online software. I knew I really enjoyed and loved design and web, so I decided to take a two year program at a local technical high school, EHOVE Career Center. Shortly before I graduated from EHOVE and High School, the owner at Kelly Graphics in Milan, OH saw my work from a Senior Capstone project and asked if I would like to intern at her studio. Kelly Graphics was a specialty print shop in Milan, OH. I worked there for the summer to gain knowledge and experience. In fall 2004, I interviewed for a layout/design position at Douthit Communications in Sandusky, OH. There I designed ads and laid out content & photos for the real estate magazine, Homes Illustrated, second shift. Two years into that job, I started working morning/days at EHOVE Career Center in Milan, OH in the digital media department. In 2008, I graduated with my two degrees and moved to Cleveland and worked in the Multi-Family & Commercial Real Estate & Business Management Industry(ies) until 2018.
In July 2018, after 10 years, I left the Multi-Family industry behind and began my current position at Q-Lab Corporation. Q-Lab Corporation is a world-wide B2B manufacturing company that specializes in manufacturing of weathering and corrosion testing chambers & testing panels. The company also offers contract weathering and corrosion testing in their labs around the world. This is especially useful to companies that don't have space for their own lab or capital to purchase testing equipment. They can contract with Q-Lab and still be able to test their products to weathering exposure to be sure they know the failure point of their product while exposed to moisture, UV light, heat and other factors.
In May of 2022 I said goodbye to my colleagues at Q-Lab and joined TPC Wire & Cable in Macedonia, OH. TPC is a broad-line supplier of industrial electric and electronic cord, cable, and accessories. TPC delivers value to its customers by providing innovative and abuse-resistant wire and cable solutions to prevent unplanned downtime and unplanned repairs. For over four decades, TPC has been a leading industrial supplier of ruggedized, high-performance solutions designed to withstand abuse from impact, abrasion, continuous flexing, caustic chemicals, and extreme temperatures for a wide range of industries.
Current Role: Digital Marketing Manager
