I completed my bachelors from Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville in 2012. I obtained my degree within the Communications Department of SIUe specializing in Advertising. Immediately upon graduation, I began my career working for small family owned businesses. While working within the Marketing Industry, I have gained expensive experience in Marketing and Website Design. In 2017, I decided to obtain my Masters at Lindenwood within the Communications Department for Promotions. I will have obtained my Master’s Degree in May 2019. I have used the information taught throughout the courses to implement it within my Marketing practices to help locally owned businesses achieve commercial success. This was achieved by allowing the companies I work with to have a competitive advantage within the Marketing field.

Since Marketing and Web Design are two of the passions that I take seriously and strive to constantly improve you can be assured that I will have the most recent knowledge of current trends within the Marketing Industry. By hiring Kreative Tribe, we can guarantee that your business will stand out from the competitors and see significant growth.
