What was your background before coming to IFM?
I completed my undergraduate degree in Liberal Arts at St. John's College and entered the world of marketing and communications through a series of internships before I joined the marketing team at IFM in 2013. 

How would members of the IFM community know you?
I manage the social media marketing for IFM and occasionally attend onsite programs. I am responsible product development on the website, uploading new editorial content, and I help promote our digital marketing strategy. I also handle data analysis projects and survey development.

What would IFM partners be surprised to learn about you?
I received my liberal arts degree from a college where we never had lectures, tests, or textbooks. Instead, we held seminar classes around a table, wrote volumes of essays, and went straight to the source to read books by the foundational philosophers, mathematicians, and scientists of Western civilization. As often as possible, we read books in their original language of Ancient Greek or French. I learned so much from this collaborative method of education based on a personal encounter with the great authors themselves. I will carry this education with me always.
