Why Marquette

Marquette is special. I could tell right away when I was interviewed here by the college's hiring committee. The professors talked about their students with such joy, and our undergraduate students exude enthusiasm for their studies and projects. I also find working with them an incredibly rewarding experience. They give their all to their internships, their studies and their professional development. It is an honor to be part of their education in the exciting field of communication.

Responsibilities

I oversee the creative work for the college and function as the project manager for the creative team. Within the team, my primary responsibilities fall within the realm of marketing: content strategy, social media strategy, digital marketing and web design.
