I am a Marketing consultant, founder and CEO of my company Marketing Matters. I worked in corporate America for more than 15 years as an executive, having been a VP and General Manager. I attended the MA Women’s Conference in the fall of 2015 and that’s when I learned about Girls Inc. I am excited to be involved with an organization where the goal is to empower young girls and teach them that the opportunities for them in their future are limitless. Exposing them to women who have succeeded in all different walks of life reinforces that. My favorite thing is that while there is a broad diversity of the girls, consistently they are all smart, curious and open to learning new things, all of which are a great foundation for them to become amazing women.

I work as a marketing specialist for Enterprise Bank in Lowell, where I’ve been for the past year and a half. I’m originally from this area and moved to the Midwest for a while, and I’m so happy to be back! Lowell is a fantastic place- I love the people, the history, the culture, and the food! I train Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and I love hiking. I am very passionate about getting women involved with martial arts and fitness in general- training and sports can be a very empowering experience for women, so I love that Girls Inc. incorporates a variety of physical activities into the girls’ experience. I’m so proud to volunteer with Girls Inc. Each girl has so many unique stories and strengths, and I think that Girls Inc. gives them an opportunity to discover these strengths in a fun, encouraging environment. It’s amazing to see how confident they are, and how they will break out of their shells, take risks, and help each other out. I look forward to continuing to work with the girls and helping them achieve their dreams.
