In my 15 years at Lamar what I love most is how the executive team is always open to searching for new and innovative ways to future proof a 118 year old company. It’s literally in our motto, “Innovating since 1902” I also love that our company’s core values are built around the Golden Rule. This seems simple to say but every employee strives to live by this daily at our jobs.
I’m a graduate of Louisiana State University in Marketing and Communications. I spent the beginning of my career in Sports Marketing, as Director of Marketing for the New Orleans Zephyrs (Houston Astros AAA) then LSU Athletics. I’ve always had an interest in the future, even given the nickname “The Future” by my mom when I was little. I’ve always been inspired by technology and creativity which fits well in my role at Lamar Advertising.
Faith and Family have always been my biggest drivers and the success of my team. There is something exciting about watching your team learn and grow in their roles and when tasks are completed. I’ve always lived by a few key values; Curiosity, Courage & Integrity which I try to challenge myself and my team daily.
I love watching my kids; Triplets (Amelie, Ellie, Jake) & Wes grow into little humans. Putting challenges in front of them and watching them succeed; whether it’s Amelie on set acting, Ellie in cheer, Jake in baseball, Wes in piano and voice. It’s very rewarding as a parent. For myself, I love fitness and health and pushing myself to the limit, new and old skills from paddle boarding, HIIT to new challenges like skateboarding and rock climbing.
I’d love the ability to go back in time at any moment in time to see what a city was like at that exact location, I’m a history nerd! My futuristic mind would love the ability to go forward in time and bring some technology back to the present. Of course scrape all of that and just good old fashioned ability to fly!

My role includes supporting Lamar’s Programmatic DOOH sales channel through planning, executing, and monitoring all campaign activations across our digital network through our valued supply-side and demand-side partners. I also work closely with our tech team to develop internal efficiencies and tools to manage our digital inventory, yield optimization, and overall demand.
I think the people and the overall culture makes it such an awesome place to work. For being such a large company, there is a real family atmosphere, I find that we hold true to our core values, and leaders make a point to show appreciation for all team members.
I’ve lived in Louisiana my whole life, grew up outside of New Orleans, went to LSU (Geaux Tigers!) and graduated in Marketing with a minor in professional sales and leadership development. I started working at Lamar while in school as an intern over 4 years ago and have grown throughout my career here in three different roles.
Passion, Integrity, Excitement, Achievement, Kindness
I love trying new restaurants, being outdoors, live music, and sports - I’m a big LSU, Saints, and Pelicans fan!
