Account Executive, iHeart Media
AAF Omaha Membership
Team Member

Many years ago, I was on the AAF Lincoln Winterfest committee and wine event we held at James Arthur Vineyards near Raymond.  I have wanted to get back to being more involved and now that my kids are in college, I have the time and the opportunity so I joined the AAF Omaha membership team in the summer of 2017.  I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to meet with other people dedicated to all elements of the advertising world.

What do you do in your free time? Any hobbies? 

I love spending time with my friends and family and anyone who is a positive influence.  I have discovered that it’s much better for me to spend time with positive people and influences in life, because it’s way too short not to do that!

My hobbies include travel, watching sports, cooking and running a half marathon each weekend on my treadmill.  All of these things are stress relievers for me in this busy world.

What is your passion in life?

My passion in life is to try to make everyone happy.  This is a difficult and impossible task, but I like it when everyone is happy and fulfilled.

If you could have any job you wanted, what would you do and why? 

I have the best job in the world right now. I’ve been in media a long time, but this is the best environment and team hands down. I’m an Account Executive at iHeart Media in Omaha and enjoy helping businesses add to their bottom line by utilizing the arsenal of products and research iHeart Media offers nationwide in their media mix.

Cats or dogs? 

I love both cats and dogs.  Animals give their love and appreciation so freely, with no judgement.

Favorite AAF event to attend?

AdConnect so I can meet and chat with as many attendees as I can throughout the evening, and have a beer or two lol.  I look forward to meeting you at AAF Omaha’s next AdConnect on April 26th at Kith & Kin. Remember this event is a Member Perk and free to AAF Omaha members.
