Search Engine Marketing Specialist
Start date: July 2012

What is your background?
I have a degree in Advertising from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with minors in Management and Psychology. I've worked at a custard shop, a bank, and in events services, but Embrace is my first 'real world' job, and I love it.

Do you have any pets currently?
I don't have any pets currently, but growing up I had the most lovable black Lab named Lottie. She's on my business cards now.

What is your favorite pet-related memory?
The first time Lottie experienced ice on the ground... We let her out of the car and she ran full speed across the ice rink to my dad, of course not realizing she couldn't stop. She eventually got the hang of it, making for a very fun afternoon at the park.

What's your favorite thing about Embrace?
Embrace's employee wellness program cannot be matched. We do yoga in the office, play bananagrams when we need a mental break, and even have a Friday 4pm happy hour (my favorite).

What do you like to do in your free time?
I really enjoy photography, I just wish I found more time to improve my skill. I take family and senior portraits for friends.

What is your favorite quote?
"And though she be but little, she is fierce." -Shakespeare

Anything else we should know about you?
I couldn't live without music and I really like pandas.
