Other Information

Employed Since
As Marketing and Publications Manager at Tampa Prep, I am responsible for a variety of tasks from creating print materials, ads and digital media to maintaining our website. With more than 10 years of experience in graphic design, editing and marketing, a position that combines these specialties is a perfect fit. After working in a variety of fields, I learned that working for an organization whose cause I believe in is most rewarding. Education has always been important as I had many influential teachers throughout my years in school. In fact, entering college, I planned to become a teacher myself, but ended up finding a home in student publications where I could combine my aptitude for grammar and writing with my creative side.

When I moved to Tampa, I discovered Tampa Prep and immediately knew it would be a wonderful place to work. I found the mission of the school so inspiring and important for today's youth and am so proud to see that the mission is truly reflective of the School. I feel privileged to be charged with promoting such an incredible institution that values independent thinking and encourages lifelong learning. Although I did not attend the school, I still consider myself a proud Terrapin!

On weekends you'll find me at the beach, spending time with friends, reading, soaking up the sun or vegging out to my favorites shows. I am a fitness fanatic who enjoys beach volleyball, yoga, running and more.
