1. What do you do at Addison Clark?

I’m an account manager. I work closely with clients for all their strategic marketing needs. This means I do a little bit of everything. Being able to work on multiple projects at once is why I chose to become a member of the account management team!

2. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

Playing my guitar or listening to all kinds of music. If the weather is permitting, I also love spending time at the river or on the Chesapeake Bay.

3. If you could travel in a Time Machine, would you go back to the past or into the future?

Past for sure. 1960s or 1970s to see some of my favorite musicians in concert – Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and so many more!

4. What is your favorite holiday.

I’ve always been a fan of Thanksgiving. I love spending time with my family and an excuse to eat way too much good food. I feel like it also deserves a little more love since it tends to fly under the radar being so close to the Christmas season.
