About me

Hi! I'm the Executive Creative Director of the LA office of WONGDOODY, where I get to lead and shape creative for clients like Cedars-Sinai Hospital, GoToMeeting, National University, MomsRising, and more. Since starting this role over 3 years ago, I launched the Wongtern program and the agency's Women in Advertising scholarship, both mentoring initiatives that are very important to me, and WONGDOODY has twice received an AdAge Small Agency of the Year award. I also recently co-founded June Cleaver Is Dead, an exploration into how marketers can better understand and connect with moms. 

Prior to WONGDOODY, I was at Creature in Seattle as Creative Director. There I helped to bring in the agency's two main clients, Dickies and Truvia, and led the agency’s ever-changing front window displays. I also helped launch the "In An Absolut World" campaign for Absolut Vodka, the brand's first new campaign in 20 years, while at TBWA Chiat/Day New York. This is my second time at WD – my first job out of school was as art director in the Seattle office. I started my career on Alaska Airlines, T-Mobile, Seattle Supersonics, and The Seattle International Film Festival.

Learn more about me here. Here's even more things about me. And this Exceptional Women out West podast from The Drum with Doug Zanger was super fun to do. Now you know everything.

My awards include Cannes Lions, D&AD, One Show, Communications Arts Design Annual and Ad Annual. I'm a proud graduate of the Art Center College of Design, also one of our WONGDOODY clients!
