Amy started her career in New York after graduating from DePauw University in 1996. During her seven years there she worked for Marvel Comics, The New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, and even spent some time in television production with “The Montel Williams Show.” Taking advantage of what the city had to offer, Amy honed her skills at the School of Visual Arts.
Moving to Chicago, Amy next worked for the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, producing marketing materials, doing market research, and creating surveys for additional client information. She moved on to Tower Media Advertising where she re-designed the corporate Web site and conceptualized and established a brand identity for the company.
Most recently, Amy was a part of DWA Healthcare Communications Group. She was the lead on corporate branding and continued to stretch her talents through innovative marketing and sales deliverables. Amy’s perspective on business led to a change in the way DWA looked at business development. She collected numerous peer awards and launched a new brand.
Amy’s corporate experience has allowed her to see what it takes to pair creative marketing with good business practices. “At Entertainment Weekly in particular, I saw how a solid corporate marketing team and good communication creates outstanding campaigns.”
