Welcome to our new blog series where you can catch up with
AMA Lincoln’s Past Presidents and see what they are up to now.

Where do you currently work and in what position?


AMA Lincoln President, 2014-2015

I am currently the Deputy Director for the Downtown Lincoln Association.

How do you think your involvement with AMA led you to that position?

I believe that having board leadership experience helped factor in on the decision to promote me to a higher leadership role.

What is your best memory or takeaway from being involved in AMA?

Talking about how amazing our board members are during the Chapter of Year speech at AMA Summit in Chicago.

What has been your biggest marketing or career accomplishment?

Creating and naming the 1080 smoothie at Juice Stop. Nothing will ever compare.

What advice do you have for entry- and mid- level marketers?

“It is what it is,” is the only advice my father ever gave me. To help humanize the quote a little: Things happen, focus on the things you can control.

What hobbies do you have outside of your love for marketing?

To time how long I can sit down before my two boys start wrestling each other. 12 seconds is the current World Record.

What is your favorite marketing campaign?

Other than the push to make the 1080 the most popular smoothie in the world, I would say the “Share a Coke” campaign.
