Tell us about your role in one sentence.
I’m a content creator who genuinely gets excited by what makes people tick and strives to combine clear messaging with strategic content packaging.
How did you end up here?
I interned for a summer during college and had intentions to return the minute I left. So, after college I interned again and stuck around until I got hired full-time.
What has been your favorite MSP-C project and why?
My favorite project was a tape crafting inspiration book for 3M’s Scotch brand because it blended the best parts of the creative process—ideation, trend-spotting, color-coding (yes, I am very excited by that organizational task), crafting, original photography—with lifestyle vignettes, writing and editing.
What three words would your colleagues use to describe you?
Creative, organized and strategic.
What’s a cause that you are passionate about and why?
Female empowerment, specifically through my involvement with Girls on the Run Twin Cities. These days, we all need reminders of how strong, smart and brave women can be, and I love giving my time to an organization that truly believes in the limitless potential of younger women.
