About Me

As a digital project manager at Sparkbox, I apply my passion for psychology, empathy, and the human side of project management to drive my success as a project lead. My years of experience in account and project manager hybrid roles for start-ups and development agencies helped to cultivate my passion for developing powerful connections with project stakeholders.

Whether leading design projects, custom app projects, or content management system website builds, I believe that empowering my team with effective workflow processes and communicating with honesty and compassion help direct project success that lasts well beyond project launch. I love to embarrass my team with exuberant affirmation and I am firmly in the camp of "Uses Too Many Exclamation Points."

Outside of work, I love exploring everything culinary! I author a food blog, cook for my community, enjoy bourbon and red wine, and spend as much time as I can in my beautiful city’s burgeoning restaurant scene.

I also love spending sunny days on Virginia's gorgeous James River, dabbling in home crafts, and snuggling with my spoiled kitten, Ava, and my massive “lapdog,” Mason.
