I was hired to be a marketing copywriter by the B2B products/solutions/IP company, Rovi, in 2012. In the subsequent years, I continued to be responsible for writing/editing marketing materials (product sheets, articles, video scripts, web copy), but with a focus on digital collateral. Rovi acquired TiVo in 2016; Xperi acquired TiVo in 2020. I'm still a part of the internal creative agency responsible for branding and marketing -- now with a larger portfolio -- including writing and publishing business-focused content on the TiVo blog.
WERKIN' THE EXTRACURRICULARS
I have a U.S. patent. I've written a novel. I'm a freelance writer. I publish opinion pieces when the spirit moves me. I'm a pug foster mom. I coordinate small- and medium-scale events on both coasts (ask me about orchestrating a Carnegie Mellon NYC theater night for 100+ alumni/friends to see "Hamilton" -- the original cast -- with a post-show talk-back in November 2015). I have a long history arranging corporate volunteer days. I'm a passionate and vocal advocate for Diversity & Inclusion initiatives -- even when they're not corporate priorities. I'll never pass up a growth opportunity.
