Hi, I’m Gracie!
I am a strategic thinker and curious learner who’s enthusiasm for the marketing and advertising industries began when I discovered that the fields combine my passions for both strategy and creativity. I have loved my work ever since!
Currently, I am working in Owned Brands Packaging at Target Corporate, where I am learning both project management skills and strategic brand planning.
Born and raised in Minneapolis, I graduated with a degree in Marketing and Mass Communications (Advertising) at the University of Minnesota, Carlson School of Management in May 2015.
I have interned at Target, General Mills, Carmichael Lynch, AdoptAClassroom.org (a local non-profit), Hunt Adkins, and Captive Minds (a marketing and public relations agency in London). Through these internships, I have gained experience in research, strategy, digital marketing, project management, public relations, and social media.
When I’m not working, you can find me planning events as the Vice President of Ad 2 for the Advertising Federation of Minnesota, working on my latest creative project, eating lots of dessert, teaching my fish a new trick, planning my next travel adventure, or exploring anything and everything in Minneapolis.
My Strengths Finder strengths are:
Whether it be for coffee, an informational meeting, or even an interview, I look forward to connecting with you.
