I am very passionate about analytics, education and mentorship. As a Digital Analytics Association (DAA) board member, I will embrace the opportunity to share my experience and knowledge with the digital analytics community. I co-founded a consulting business, built it from the ground up and nurtured a very talented group of senior consultants, and I believe my years’ of dedication to the growth of the industry is beneficial to the DAA board of directors. I am prepared to commit the time and effort to support the DAA and its initiatives. As an active ambassador, I will generate more awareness, focus on the importance of career development in analytics, increase DAA membership and promote DAA programs.
Why should members vote for you?
I am committed and will deliver results! For more than 20 years, I have volunteered and served on local and national boards for non-profits and organizations within our industry. I am currently a DAA co-chair of the San Francisco Bay Area and was part of the team that successfully organized a local DAA Symposium in 2012 and 2013. For more than six years, I have served on the International Advisory Board for WSI (a franchisor with 1,100 plus worldwide marketing consultants). In this capacity, I played a vital role in establishing mentorship and coaching programs across the globe, and provided strategic input at various levels of the organization. I also serve as an advisor and board member of a national advocacy non-profit with 20 chapters across the country. In this role, I provide guidance on how best to develop the organization and establish successful PR campaigns, communication infrastructure and community development projects. I have a strong dedication to volunteering my time to programs that impact my industry and the community. I would enjoy the opportunity to make a difference as a DAA board member, and will commit the needed time to support the success of the DAA.
