I’m excited to join the Brand Fuel team this year! I’ve been in the promotional products industry for two years and in event management for six years prior to that. I love working with clients and finding creative solutions for their branding and marketing needs.
I grew up in eastern North Carolina, although I’ve been told I’m missing the accent. I moved to Chapel Hill to attend UNC and have stayed in The Triangle area ever since. In my free time, I love facetiming my two nephews, Miles and Galen, reading, becoming absorbed in my latest crafting adventure (knitting, quilting, clay art, jewelry making – if it’s in Michaels, I’ve probably done it), and painting animal portraits – especially my friend’s cat who’s my mews.
Favorite Sports Teams: Tar Heels, Baltimore Ravens. I’m the organizer for the Ravens meetup group in The Triangle. I have choreographed movements to the fight song and everything. Come join, it’s a fun time!
Favorite Quote: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Apparently, this wasn’t Gandhi’s quote but it’s still good.
Favorite Promotional Product and Why: I love Refresh Glass. Their products are functional, aesthetically pleasing and divert would be trash from landfills. I think it’s important the products a brand uses to market itself reflect the values of the company itself.
Favorite Band: Guster
What I do when no one is looking: Sing
Favorite Book: Golden Compass Trilogy
Favorite Artist: Norman Rockwell
Favorite Song: Seasons of Love, Come Downstairs and Say Hello
My Superpower: My mom told me that it is my kindness, so I’ll go with that.
Favorite Condiment: Salsa
Your dinner guest choice: My dad
Favorite B Corp: Raining Rose – They have great hand sanitizers that work well and smell good. The Iced Pear scent is my favorite.
