How’d you get to where you are today, working at 435 Digital?
I have been a digital marketing professional for 10+ years – 8 years at Chicago Tribune Interactive and 3 years at Yahoo! I took time off to care for my daughter and son. Once they had a strong foundation, I was ready to jump back in. I began linking in with all my past colleagues and networking both online and off. This opportunity came up and it felt right. It is good to be back.
