I knew at a pretty early age that I wanted to pursue a career in advertising, so I was thrilled to accept a job offer the day before my college graduation from the Denver office of Saatchi & Saatchi. After 3+ years working on the Toyota account in Denver I decided to seek a warmer climate and more challenging environment so I packed my bags for Los Angeles. There I worked at Deutsch on several high-profile accounts, including Saturn. I moved to Charlotte in late 2010 with my husband and found myself fitting into the grooves at Birdsong Gregory, a smaller agency than I was used to, but found out quickly that smaller doesn't always mean less. In this case, I found BG bringing out my entrepreneurial spirit and cunning ability to connect with clients from all different industries. These days you'll find me riding lawn mowers through photo shoots, picking out the right environmentally responsible paper for my needs, eating Chobani yogurt on the streets of NY and shopping the grocery store aisles for consumer insights. Yes, life in Charlotte couldn't get much better than this.
