Marketing and Business Consulting

Where do I begin? I started at the absolute bottom in marketing and advertising and worked my up. Technically, my first marketing and sales gig, started in the form of a paper route when I was 11 years old for the Lincoln and Belmont Booster.  My journey took me through, babysitting, fitness, food service, administration, human resources, finance and investments, media, software development and training, and circled back to advertising where I worked at Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide and Noble & Associates, on accounts including Wilson Sporting Goods, Gerber Baby Food, Good Humor Breyers, Kimberly Clark, Kraft, Sunbeam and more. My experience encompasses strategic planning, advertising, direct mail, and event management.  My broad spectrum of client service practice ranges from regional to global relationships and include baby food, union laborers, ice cream, flooring, appliances, construction, and commercial interiors. While my a good portion of my experience has been with Fortune 500 companies, when I started Creative Chick Marketing Shop in 2005, I also worked with a number of mid to large sized businesses.  In addition to providing marketing services, I also believe in educating my clients by providing “Marketing 101” in the process. The combination of partnership and education creates a truly powerful marketing strategy as well as seamless communication and understanding for the best results to grow a business.
