I am the Media Relations and Marketing Manager for the School of Earth and Space Exploration. Prior to joining ASU in late 2015, I worked for 10 years at a full-service Phoenix-based advertising agency, conducting comprehensive cause-based marketing programs. Prior to joining the ad agency world, I was the Director of Tourism Development at the Arizona Office of Tourism and I taught tourism marketing courses for ASU's School of Community Resources and Development. I earned my bachelor's degree in French and my master's degree in Recreation Management and Tourism, both at ASU. My real claim to fame, however, is riding my horse Peaches in the Tournament of Roses Parade (five times!) and successfully hiking the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim.
