VICE PRESIDENT OF MARKETING – Alex and Ani LLC

AGE: 29

Why did you select your profession?

Graduating from URI with an accounting degree, I worked in finance right out of college but always knew that I wanted to break into the fashion industry, specifically into marketing. In 2009 I was living in New York City and was laid off from my job due to the recession and started working for Alex and Ani out of [its] Manhattan showroom in PR/sales. As the company evolved, we developed a marketing department. Five years later, I am vice president of marketing.

What’s the best career advice you’ve received?

As a young professional mistakes will be made, but the way mistakes are handled is what’s important. Admit fault, learn from your mistakes and move on.

What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?

Be patient and pursue your dream job because when you do what you love … it won’t seem like a “job.”

What is your favorite Rhode Island escape or hobby?

Rhode Island beaches.

How do you keep a work-life balance?

I take advantage of my weekends and time off to travel with family and friends.
