my STORy ANd PASSIOn FOR COMMUNICATIONS
Brand storyteller | Marketing strategist | Professional writer
My role as a marketer has centered around creating touchpoints with clients, prospects and the community. I have served as a change agent and brand strategist, leading marketing and business development initiatives that build relationships.
What drives me is a passion for crafting communications and helping businesses thrive. I am energized by working with an organization to find its voice, tell its story, and develop messaging that resonates with its intended audience. I am the ultimate brand champion for my clients and pride myself on delivering exceptional work.
Having emigrated from Poland to Portland with my parents as a child in the late 80's, I became bilingual in a matter of a few months. I developed a strong work ethic, and a desire to learn and excel. Even as an eight-year-old I was an entrepreneur at heart and had my own lemonade stand. My interest in business grew after taking marketing classes and participating in DECA competitions in high school. This led me to pursue my Bachelor's in Business Administration from the University of Southern California. My resilience and curiosity, along with my love and talent for words, stem from my experience. It's what propelled me to pursue my career sweet spot as a brand storyteller and start my own business.
I am a Portland native with 20+ years of experience in B2B marketing, communications and business development for professional services firms in some of the most dynamic markets in the country, including Los Angeles and New York. The beautiful Pacific Northwest was calling, and I have been back in Portland for 7+ years helping companies and organizations communicate their value. I am inspired by the business community and entrepreneurial spirit here in Oregon.
