With my academic background and professional experiences, I am prepared for a wide range of careers. I am flexible in the type of work I pursue as long as it involves daily challenges, a variety of tasks and activities, and the opportunity to impact and influence the organization. In my most recent role as a team manager, I most enjoy the work to develop my team, both on the strategic framing, vision and set-up as well as building the career and professional plans with my reports.

Mozilla Marketing, 2012 – Present
From project managing campaigns to managing programs to managing a team, my time at Mozilla is defined by opportunities for professional growth. Currently, I hold two roles within the Mozilla Marketing team:
- European Consumer Marketing Lead (since Aug 2020): I manage the team responsible for how Mozilla and its products show up in Europe, through all of our earned, owned and paid channels. Since taking this role on, I have rebuilt the team and developed a long term strategy for continuing to grow our impact in the region. I manage a multi-million euro budget and in 2021 we launched always on performance marketing programs, a key opinion leader collective and built strong foundations to ensure our team is set up for success in the future.
- Marketing Culture Team Lead (since May 2018): I have lead the marketing culture iniative since being selected as the Culture Advocate in 2018. The focus of this work is on building an inclusive team through connections: with each other, with leadership and with the team.Additionally we particpate in the Mozilla DEI Council to help share initiatives we run within our marketing team. In 2021, we refreshed our team Values and Norms; introduced time to connect through skip level 1:1s, office hours, and casual „coffee“ chats with colleagues and initiated a weekly gratitude practice.
Publishing, 2008 – 2014
Prior to joining Mozilla I worked in the publishing industry as a library marketing manager. My first roles included two internships as a Master’s student: Library Marketing Intern at Henry Holt Books for Young Readers and SEO Content Management Intern with Entertainment Weekly.
From there I took a role as a Library Sales & Marketing Manager with Nolo and a short stint in a similar role at No Starch Press. While in these roles, I was responsible for a wide variety of tasks, primarily related to writing and executing content to promote new titles (press releases, social content, emails). Additionally, I planned, organized and participated in regional and national library events including ALA, PLA and PubWest.
Education, 2001 – 2007
My first career was as a teacher – both in the classroom and as a tutor. While I worked with students in pre-K all the way through high school, my emphasis was on the elementary years. I have classroom experience teaching second, fourth and sixth grade. And as a tutor, I worked within a framework to plan activities for students of all ages.
