Marketing & Event Coordination

Passionate about building strong communities and interactions

I have always had a passion for business management and marketing, which I was fortunate enough to utilize for over seven years at Cutitta Chiropractic, starting as a receptionist within the practice in 2012. Soon I was able to put my passions to work as I developed a thriving Marketing and Event Management department, more than doubling the number of new patient visits weekly within a year.

Since 2017 I have also enjoyed being the co-founder and head administrator of Team Firestorm, an augmented reality video game social club. With over 300 members, Team Firestorm has enabled a wide range of people from across Pittsburgh form lasting friendships and meet others with similar interests. This project fostered my love of event planning and coordination, skills which I utilize daily in my career.

In 2019 I returned to school, receiving my Bachelor of Science in Sports, Arts, and Entertainment Management at Point Park University, in December of 2020. Completing my degree in two years was a challenge, however I feel it illustrates my personal drive to continually grow and learn new skills whether in a professional or educational setting.

Like many others, I found that 2021 brought new opportunities as I started with NFM+Dymun, a marketing and experiential event company located in Pittsburgh and working with clients nationwide. With this group I have been fortunate enough to plan multiple events monthly, including hiring vendors locally and ensuring a consistent experience regardless of event location.

I hope you enjoy perusing my portfolio, whether looking in more detail at projects I worked on while at Point Park or in my professional life. Let me know if you think I might be the right fit for your organization!

Career Goals

  • Work with a company dedicated to improving communities
  • Find a position with room for growth
  • Live in Pittsburgh while working for a company that embraces travel as part of their regular routine

Work Philosophy

I believe that every member of a team is the most influential part of the team - whether a CEO or a data entry clerk. I have always worked with the idea of "taking ownership" and working as though I own my company, doing everything I can to bring all I can to the table. I believe in doing my best work, even if that means putting a little bit more in to ensure quality.

I am a firm believer in community - that what we do influences every aspect of the communities around us. As an employee, this means ensuring I am always operating with my team, clients and managers to ensure we are supporting each other to the best of our abilities.

Finally, I believe that my education is never complete. After 2 decades in the workforce I returned to school to get my bachelor's degree. I continue to take online seminars and certifications to improve my skills. Learning is something that is everyday to me, not just because I wanted a diploma. If I'm given a task that I am unsure of, you can be assured I will look up and learn all the tools necessary to bring my best work to the table at the end of the day.
