What is your background?
I was born and raised in the farmlands of southeast Arkansas. With my parents' blessing I moved to Paris, France after freshman year of college. I signed with modeling agencies in Paris & Milan and spent a little under 2 years pursing my runway dreams in Europe. Homesick and burned out on “working in the real world,” I went home to finish college. I completed my B.A. in Journalism (emphasis in Advertising & Public Relations) from the University of Arkansas and 2 weeks after graduation I moved to New York. I had a lot of optimism and no clue what I wanted to do with my newly earned degree. I spent the next 5 years in Manhattan gaining experience working in industries ranging from night club server to pharmaceutical sale rep for Pfizer and Eli Lilly. I moved to Austin (to be closer to family and warmer weather) almost 11 years ago. I’ve worked with the non-profits Hospice Austin and Austin Film Festival. For the past 7 years I’ve been an account manager for a boutique merchandise marketing agency and mom to two great little kids!

What’s your favorite thing about working at (un)Common Logic?
I cannot pick just one! It’s an equal split between the amazing people I get to learn from and work with every day and the opportunity to sharpen my professional skills with ongoing continuing education opportunities.
What’s the most challenging aspect of your job?
The ever-changing landscape of digital marketing. It’s challenging but keeps the job exciting.
Anything big happening this year outside of work?
Being able to travel and see family again is HUGE! And we are taking our kids to the happiest place on earth but sshhhh it’s a surprise!
What makes you (un)Common?
I’m a proud 1st generation female farm co-owner with my sister! I love dancing, deer hunting, high heels and lipstick! I legitimately like small talk and getting to know someone. I was on season 4 of Project Runway & my last random fun fact – I was a principal lead in a Nickelback music video!
