"Walk Marketing is a combination of my expertise in advertising, marketing, public relations, political communications, and more. "
"Over the years, I have told the stories of a variety of small businesses, non-profit organizations, political groups, congressional candidates, environmental groups, and more.
I graduated with a bachelors degree in advertising from Bradley University in 2015, where I worked with multiple local Peoria businesses running social media campaigns, creating print and radio ads, and managing email marketing promotions.
In 2016, I moved to Washington D.C. I worked for a political communications group where I gained valuable experience drafting social media posts, press releases, and research reports, while talking with reporters at sources including CNN, Reuters, and Bloomberg.
In late 2016, I worked in Colorado as communications director for a congressional candidate. I created press releases, ran a fundraising campaign, redesigned the campaign website, crafted persuasive radio and print advertisements, and more. We won in an upset by one percentage point.
Starting my own business had been my dream since I was a student in the Effingham County, IL CEO program. I knew I wanted to start it in Effingham County, where I could give back to the people that helped me grow throughout the years. So, I started Walk Marketing in March 2017. "
