I'm always learning something new from our team. Route promotes an incredible culture of radical condor, creating an environment where you know you can give and receive proper feedback.

My door is always open and I find the most rewarding part of my job to be helping others."



What makes someone successful on your team?

For my team, the ability to quickly adapt, pivot & get creative, especially in the current covid climate, is key. The event & experiential marketing industries are changing more rapidly than ever so being able to keep a finger on the pulse of those changes, make shifts, think outside of the box is what makes our team successful (and badass!).
