I was told this on the first day of my first internship and I've lived by it ever since. Throughout my professional journey, I've had the privilege of gaining experience through incredible opportunities. From agency to in-house advertising and marketing, I’ve collaborated with teams to execute major strategic brand campaigns domestically and internationally. Each experience has laid the foundation for my professional development, along with bringing some pretty stellar people into my life.
