Where I've Been. Where I’m Going.
I am an experienced Intellectual Property Manager and Producer who has contributed to global brand destinations and cultural attractions around the world. For the last few years I have worked as a Sr. Manager of IP for the Universal Creative division of NBCUniversal helping ensure consistency and IP authenticity for a collection of in progress projects. I am responsible for maintaining and strengthening our relationships with external IP holders, ensuring effective and efficient communication, as well as gaining creative approvals on all design development. Prior to working with NBCUniversal I worked as a project manager for an Experiential Design firm in Los Angeles, CA. My clients included 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.) 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, AZ. I am currently enrolled as an online Masters of Legal Studies student at Arizona State University with the goal of expanding my knowledge of intellectual property law, contracts and licensing.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
My husband and I enjoy spending our time discovering new places and exploring new unknowns in both our professional and personal lives. We are always looking forward to the next endeavor -- wherever it may take us! In between travels, I spend weekends discovering new music, editing home videos, playing games and watching anime. Nerd would be an understatement. I have a curious obsession with sharks, gaming, photography and graphic design/editing.
