As Assistant Director of Administration and University Relations, I manage the university’s Trademark Licensing program. Through this program, I guide the university’s massive procurement of branded merchandise and meet with partners and retailers on customized projects and needs. I liaise with on-campus and online retail outlets and actively work with trademark licensees to ensure alignment with university values and policies, from brand alignment to social and environmental responsibility. I co-chair the university’s Purposeful Branded Merchandise Working Group, chair the Official Ring Committee, and am an active member of the Fair Labor Association.
As part of the administrative team, I handle the HCM functions in Workday for University Marketing & Communications. I am also an HR resource for my colleagues.
I earned my bachelor’s in communication with an emphasis on public relations from Missouri State University. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, reading, cooking with my sons, and chilling with my husband and cats.
