Where to start…

Writing my first blog post has turned out to be more daunting than I thought it would be. Why would anyone care about what I have to say? You may not yet, but my goal here is to talk about anything marketing, strategy, creative… and to populate my blog with discussion and resources that can be useful to people in real-life marketing situations.

Blah blah blah, you say. You don’t know me yet, I get it. I need to earn your trust.

I’m new to the University, I guess I should start with that. I’ve been a marketer for about 13 years. Before this, I was Marketing Director of Strategic Planning at an Advertising Agency, working on a large QSR account (ask me sometime).  It was good work, and I was comfortable. But being comfortable isn’t really conducive to being creative and challenged.

A little about me personally – married, 2 boys, Catholic, mega soccer mom. I love all things creative – photography, design, writing, cooking, and (don’t laugh) scrapbooking. I’m addicted to lists. Maybe that will be my next blog post.

I’m very excited to be here, to say the least. There are some really amazing people here – and I’m not just saying that. I’m really humbled. The 5th floor of Grace is an awesome place to be. Stop by sometime.
