I’m the Senior Director of Business Intelligence at Dealer Inspire, a fast-growing and award-winning technology company near Chicago. I’m extremely driven and goal-oriented, but also need the freedom of “me time” to relax in silence (usually laying down!) to explore all of my thoughts. I’m hard-pressed to decide if I’m happier curled up on a hammock in my peaceful backyard or sitting on a raft, beer in hand, floating on our lake.

Utilizing my more than 15 years of digital marketing and analytics experience, I spend my days at Dealer Inspire directing the daily operations of the newest teams at Dealer Inspire – the Business Intelligence team and the Welcome team. It’s easy for me to #lovewhatyoudo because I get to spend my working hours solving problems, coaching team members, setting priorities, learning from my brilliant co-workers, championing data integrity, improving workflows to maximize productivity, using data to justify decisions, and celebrating a lot of wins.

I spend my evenings and weekends with my crazy family; laughing, crying and everything in between. Baseball, t-ball, and soccer schedules are just a few pieces of my Mom Hustle. My daydreams revolve around finding more “me time” and traveling. I try to keep myself sane with naps, Netflix, and eating out as often as I can.
