How’d you get to where you are today, working at 435 Digital?
For the last 7 years, my career has been solely focused within sales. After graduating from University of Minnesota, I first jumped into the mortgage industry as a Mortgage Banker. Due to the unfortunate mortgage crisis in 2008, I began to look for other opportunities that would still allow me to leverage, but also grow my sales skills. I transitioned to a position with AT&T as a Sales Consultant, and experienced a great deal of success within the role. After 4.5 years with the company, I was eager to pursue the next challenge. I wanted to continue to grow as a Sales professional, but focus my efforts within digital. This goal led me to 435 Digital.
I understand digital and technology are two of the fastest growing sectors. I also understand that with the constant evolution of digital platforms and properties, there is ongoing demand from businesses and consumers alike to remain up to speed and to understand how to best leverage digital, to their benefit.
After learning more about 435, I was confident that I wanted to plan an integral role in pushing forward the company’s vision for identifying and driving digital solutions for SMB’s around the Chicagoland area. I am privileged and honored to work for such a progressive company and I look forward to everything that is to come!

With that, I surround myself with people or influencers, like Eric, who match my mindset and are a constant source of positivity.
