What prompted you to join Magnet?

I joined Magnet several years ago after attending a professional development breakfast with Rebecca Ryan. At around the same time, Magnet was looking to develop a marketing committee, so I jumped on the opportunity to get more involved. 

  1. What is your favorite thing about being part of Magnet?

I love the variety of people I meet through Magnet, and the opportunity to learn about different industries. Some of my closest friendships exist because of connections I have made through Magnet.

  1. What do you as a career? What is your favorite part about it?

I am Product Manager for Morgan Murphy Media. Specifically, I manage projects for our digital properties and maintain our network advertising. I love the combination of working in an evolving digital landscape and being able to gauge and affect consumer experience on our sites.

  1. What do you do when you’re not working or hanging out with other Magnet members?

When I’m not working or participating in Magnet, I enjoy travelling, doing yoga, playing volleyball and softball, attending concerts and rooting for my Packers and Badgers. Namaste.

  1. Tell us something about yourself that most people probably don’t know

I am a professional singer when I get into my car. Seriously.

  1. Money aside, what is your dream job? 

Money and all reality aside, I dream of being a professional pastry taster in Paris. Mostly pain au chocolat…and mostly the pain au chocolat à la pistache at Ladurée. I’ll cleanse my palette between tastings with the really decadent, rich hot chocolate found only in Paris.
