MY LIFE AT GLOBE RUNNER:
I joined the Globe Runner team as a Business Development Manager because Globe Runner’s mission is a match with my own and that is to build relationships and help businesses thrive.
I have been involved in sales of several types of marketing, but believe digital marketing to be the best avenue for business growth and success. I also find learning and promoting new technologies exciting. I first realized that I had a passion for this space during my time managing a sales team that worked with radio stations to develop websites. Our team successfully launched the first Windows Media Player for Microsoft!
I am originally from Nashville but moved to Dallas after college for a position as the Sales Director of a new open-air Amphitheatre owned by MCA Concerts named Starplex. My background with entertainment, media, and technology companies spans 17 years, 14 years with ABC Radio Networks as a Regional Manager for ABC programs.
My family includes a daughter Lexie in the 9th grade and a son Evan, a Sophomore at SMU. My mother had 9 siblings and was a war bride from Wales, so I have many cousins abroad that I stay connected with in the UK and New Zealand.
In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering on the board of a nonprofit, Families to Freedom, with an organization where mothers and daughters serve local charities called National Charity League and as a Stephen Minister for my church. For fun, I like to take art classes and practice painting and drawing. Outdoors, I enjoy walking our dog Claude (a 100lb shepherd mix) and hiking. I have hiked to the top of the waterfall trail at Yosemite, Cinque Terre vineyard trails in Italy, top of the Duomo in Florence and most recently Deer Mt. Summit at Estes Park, CO. I hope to someday hike the North Highland Way in Scotland.
