Manager of Digital Marketing
At the South Shore CVA, I handle our online presence including managing our websites and email marketing campaigns. I've learned so much about our area since I began working here, and I enjoy educating our visitors on all the great places there are to visit in the South Shore throughout the year.
I received a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. I worked at the Journal and Courier in Lafayette, IN as a graphic designer before coming to the South Shore CVA. I started working for the South Shore CVA in 2004 as the Executive Assistant to the President/CEO where I learned many different aspects of our organization. I was later moved into digital marketing, where I am able to utilize my skills in graphic and web design.
One of my favorite places to go is Fair Oaks Farms. The first time my family went, we spent 7 hours there between the tour, hands-on exhibits, movie, lunch (and dessert), shopping and outside activities for the kids. We were shocked when we looked at the time!
My family and I also enjoy the summer and fall festivals in downtown Crown Point. The square with the old courthouse and tons of shops is a great backdrop for the festivals and they always make sure any age is entertained – bounce houses, food vendors, live entertainment, beer gardens and more.
