Share some news with us: I was recently selected to serve on the 2017-18 SMPS Certification Committee. I have served on the SMPS New Mexico board for four years, and now I am excited to volunteer at the national level.
How has SMPS helped you in your career? SMPS has been instrumental to my success as a marketer. The educational resources that SMPS offers has increased my knowledge of the marketing and business development roles in the A/E/C industries. This knowledge has given me the tools to help my firm win more work, allowing me to advance my career from a marketing assistant to marketing coordinator, and now currently as a marketing manager.
Share a helpful hint with your fellow SMPS members: The Adobe Forum is a great resource if you have a question or issues with any of the Adobe products. You can browse related topics or post a question for the Adobe Community to respond to.
Tell us something we’d be surprised to learn about you. I had a short-lived (one television commercial) hand modeling career.
Tell us about a recent work day: I completed a proposal and worked on five client funding applications.
As a CPSM, how has certification benefitted you? The CPSM certification has benefitted me in several ways. Through studying for the exam and attending R2C, the CPSM immersion course, I have gained a better understanding of the six domains of practice and how I can apply some of the best practices within my own organization. The recognition I have received from my colleagues has also been wonderful. The certification has identified me as an expert in my field, and I am proud and excited to now be able to mentor other marketing staff members on their path to becoming certified.
