I am an experienced Producer and Partnerships manager who has contributed to global brands and cultural projects around the world. For the last few years, I have worked as a Senior Manager of Intellectual Property & Partnerships for the Universal Creative division of NBCUniversal helping ensure consistency and IP authenticity for a collection of projects. I am responsible for maintaining and strengthening our relationships with external IP holders which include well-known brands such as Nintendo and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. In addition to my role as Sr. Manager with NBCUniversal, I have also worked as a Producer, overseeing several projects for Universal Creative.
Prior to working with NBCUniversal, I worked as a project and creative manager for an experiential design firm in Los Angeles, CA - BRC Imagination Arts. During my time with BRC, I managed the development and re-branding of multiple major brand projects, including Coca-Cola, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Ford Motor Company, Jameson, the Milwaukee Brewers and the European Union. I was exhilarated by the collaboration with diverse stakeholders (clients, visual artists, sound and show set designers, producers, etc.) which allowed me to combine many perspectives into a cohesive storytelling experience that created unforgettable memories for audiences.
In 2018 I completed an MBA with a concentration in Marketing through the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE
Discovery has always been a constant in my life, whether it be exploring new places, taking on a new project, embarking on a new adventure, or finding solutions for challenges in both my professional and personal life - I am always looking forward to the next endeavor -- wherever it may take me! This drive encourages an innate willingness to adapt to any circumstance. This willingness has relocated me oversees and cross country, as well as encouraged a passion to travel and explore all the stories the world has to offer.
In between travels, my husband and I spend our free time playing video games, building workout routines, discovering new music, editing videos, and watching anime. Nerd would be an understatement.
