Describe your current role.
I am the current senior manager on the Integrated Marketing team, specifically leading national consumer marketing for Home Audio and Memory.

What accomplishment(s) are you most proud of?
From a long-term perspective, I am most proud of being able to pivot my career. I have moved from an agency account role to a marketing analytics position, and am currently in an integrated marketing role. I was able to continually pursue my interests to find a role that truly fits. Looking at 2021, I am very proud to have worked on initiatives that champion diversity and inclusion, such as the Samsung Open Tournament Series. This co-ed eSports match creates opportunities for new players to play competitively, leveling the playing field.

What do you like best about your job?
I work on an amazing team, with very smart, collaborative and inspiring colleagues and we are led by a very supportive leadership team. Secondly, I love that it’s fast-paced and there is never a dull moment.
What technology are you most excited about at the moment?
5G. As it rolls out and becomes more accessible, it will enable new innovation that we haven’t yet thought of.

What career advice would you give to people just getting started in the CE or technology industry?
Since things are constantly changing, it is helpful to stay informed of trends. Sign up for industry-specific news and make a conscious effort to set aside time for this.
