I’m proud to be the newest addition to the account service team at Schifino Lee.
I was born and raised in Ft. Myers, and I moved to Tampa to pursue a degree in Mass Communications from the University of South Florida. I’ve always been intrigued by advertising, I think it’s remarkable how a well-crafted message can influence a person’s feelings and decision making, and do it millions of times.
After obtaining my degree, I began working for Fort Myers-based Moore & Scarry Advertising where I was in Account Service for more than a year.
I was only with Moore & Scarry for 3 months when my fiancé, Tom, got an offer he couldn’t refuse. He took a position in Tampa and we became a commuter couple saying goodbye on Monday mornings and re-introducing ourselves to each other every Friday night.
The situation had to change, but I didn’t want to take just any job in or near Tampa Bay. I wanted a spot in a strategy-based agency that prizes creative thinking. When I found out that Schifino Lee was looking for a new Account Executive, I pounced. This was the job I was waiting for.
After some tough interviews I got past a number of well-qualified candidates and here I am. I’m thrilled to be working with a great team of individuals who do such smart and insightful work. Living in the same town as Tom is pretty good too!
