What is my M? My M is … INFLUENCING! Knowing how to effectively influence others is a powerful tool in our society. In the wrong hands, it can negatively shape the world. As M Agency’s Account Manager, I’m committed to being an authentic and honest influencer—by truly understanding the needs of our clients and engaging with the greater community. Through my M, I’m able to impact an audience that trusts my opinion, as well as help others achieve their goals.
How did I get into marketing?
I’ve worked in marketing for more than 15 years, supporting several national brands in the fashion and sports apparel industry. Since I was a child, I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit. I knew that this industry would allow me to work with people and help them tell their story—something I’ve always been passionate about. I believe that regardless of the service, product or brand that you’re selling, marketing is all about the matter of evoking a feeling that provides effective results.
How do I balance being a busy professional, while also being a mother to little ones?
When it comes to managing a work/life balance, schedules are everything! But of course, I couldn’t do it without the support of my husband.
Daytime is dedicated to work—I always try to get as much accomplished as I can and focus on my role as an Account Manager. But when the work day is done, I clock out and begin my second gig: a full-time wife and mother to two boys. Achieving work/life balance means knowing when to turn off and be present in the moment. I treasure the time I get to spend with my family in the evenings and on the weekends. We unwind, connect about our day and enjoy each others company.
How does my M inspire my life outside of work?
Outside of my work at M Agency, I’m a beauty and lifestyle influencer. Throughout the years, I’ve developed an amazing audience within the beauty community on social media and YouTube. When the kids go to bed — that’s when I turn on my camera and get to work! As an influencer, I get to explore my love for makeup, share my favorite brands and products as well as interact with people from around the world.
Ultimately, my goal is to encourage my audience to embrace their unique beauty and live their best life bright! My platform has given me the opportunity to travel, network with incredibly talented people and tap into my creativity.
What am I most excited for in 2018 with M Agency?
In 2018, I’m most excited to continue my growth within M Agency. Within my role, I’m fortunate enough to have the opportunity to engage in the community, supporting organizations like The Girls Only Prom and Experience Tacoma who are making a positive impact for Tacoma. There’s so much brewing this year that I would love to reveal, but you’ll just have to stay tuned!
