Major(s): Art History
What is your current role? What was your journey in arriving there?
I am the VP Digital Marketing for Live! Casino & Hotel, a regional gaming and hospitality leader whose Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland is the fifth largest commercial casino outside Las Vegas. My team manages the company’s marketing technology including its DAM, websites, social media reporting, and search. I previously managed large brands for both The Hershey Company and McCormick as well as for smaller brands as an investor/consultant. Out of Wesleyan, I led luxury European bike trips and became a management consultant.
What do you enjoy about your work? What do you struggle with?
I love the creativity and ambiguity of my role. There is never a day like another, but I am mostly given the freedom to figure out what is important and make progress on it.
How did your time at Wesleyan influence your career choice/journey?
I was an art history major with a French concentration and primarily used that background in my food industry work. It still influences my creativity today as I am constantly asking questions.
Do you have any advice for students thinking about entering your industry?
Many companies in our industry have management training programs. That’s a great way to start!
