I have been working since I turned 16. Strangely enough, I have only working in the restaurant industry. From server, to marketing assistant to Casual Dining Brand Manager, I truly showed my passion for food. However, I'm ready to find a new passion!

Work history

Casual Dining Brand Manager
My current position is Casual Dining Brand Manager, but I have done anything and everything from Meritage corporate graphic design and event planning to creating in-store POP (point of purchase) materials and promotional planning!
Marketing Specialist
My previous position within Meritage was the Marketing Specialist. The description is very similar to the above, just less of a PURE focus on Casual Dining.
Marketing Assistant
My previous position within Meritage was the Marketing Assistant. I was part-time before I graduated college, and was immediately promoted to Marketing Specialist.
Server/Entry Sales
I started at Meritage as a server at one of their casual dining locations, Crooked Goose. Within 1 month, I was promoted to server trainer. Within another 8 months, I was promoted to the corporate office at Meritage.
Development Intern
During the duration of my internship at Paws, I helped create the 2014 billboard awareness campaign using one of my photographs, self-launched their Instagram page, created and edited content for their newsletter & e-newsletter, and played with puppies.
Speech Consultant
Met with undergraduate students to help educate on proper speaking techniques and worked with Director of Speech Lab to come up with a social media campaign.
Server/Entry Sales

What I read

I read all kinds of things! When it comes to books, I've got the HP collection, any John Green, Divergent Series, etc. I read anything interesting (which is a lot of things) on LinkedIn; always looking to get ahead in my field.

Ideal team

I truly don't have a preference. I can adapt to any situation.
