As a Project Manager, I work with a great team to ensure that our clients have the best possible experience with any aspect of their site, from new builds to maintainence. I'm here to focus on the details, and guide our clients through the decisions to create a site that achieves their goals. It's important to me that our clients feel engaged and involved, and I take pride in the relationships that grow with my customer service.
I grew up in Chestnut Ridge, NY, in the beautiful Hudson Valley region. I've enjoyed a lifelong love affair with music, like many of my teammates here at Newfangled. I earned a BA from New College of Florida in Sarasota, and more recently graduated with a Master's degree in Library Science here at UNC Chapel Hill.

When not at work, you can find me playing music, biking, or hanging out at the local library.
