Owner

Beggs Creative

July 2004February 2011 (6 years 8 months)

As a freelance marketing consultant, I've had the pleasure of working with select for-profit and non-profit organizations who have contributed as much to my life as I have their business.

Marketing/Content Strategist

Digett

Privately Held; 1-10 employees; Marketing and Advertising industry

June 2008October 2010 (2 years 5 months)

My primary role at Digett was designing and implementing creative content marketing strategies and managing tactical campaigns for client and firm promotion. This included developing brand strategy, market segmentation, and targeted content for B2B and B2C clients as well as creating and publishing web, print, and video content. Additionally, my role required knowledge of feedback and analysis systems and creative oversight of project implementation. This position afforded me the opportunity to develop my skills in overall strategic development and tactical use of digital marketing tools such as the Drupal content management system, email campaign platforms, analytics programs, PPC advertising platforms, and others.

Privately Held; 501-1000 employees; Utilities industry

October 2004June 2008 (3 years 9 months)

At PEC, I was charged with writing, editing, and designing internal and external publications, including press releases, direct mailings, magazine spreads, web publications, television commercials, corporate videos, and more. Part of my role required overseeing communications campaign planning, budgeting, and production, and I worked directly with upper management to achieve organizational communications goals. In addition, this position required media relations skills and familiarity with technical writing and content. PEC challenged me by placing trust in my managerial and organizational skills and taught me to work within a dedicated team and efficient corporate culture.

Communications/Marketing Director

Beggs Law Firm

July 2002July 2004 (2 years 1 month)

I began work at my family’s law firm while operating Main Street Perks, my own business. In addition to designing, building, and maintaining the firm’s website (since redesigned), I planned and produced marketing and PR materials such as brochures and press releases. Additionally, I was asked to assist in planning public seminars and outreach events in the local community. My experience at the firm prepared me to tackle and master intricate and complicated rules; this role required knowledge of the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct as they relate to external communications and marketing. Moreover, it afforded me the opportunity to experience the joys and complications of the legal world and working with those you love.

Owner/Proprietor

Main Street Perks, Inc

October 2001June 2004 (2 years 9 months)

Thanks to a confluence of circumstances, an intense love for coffee, and a bit of insanity, I pursued a dream of opening a business by establishing a coffeehouse and cafe in downtown Irving. For Main Street Perks, I planned and oversaw the entire operation, from drafting and construction, to equipment and supply procurement, menu and product development, payroll and human resources functions, marketing, and everything else an entrepreneur tackles. I wore an apron, made drinks, baked goods, made lunches, mopped floors, assisted employees and customers, and typically closed down after a 14-hour day. This experience taught me countless things, chief among them that I could not do it all and needed to learn to rely on others.

Graduate Assistant/Advisor

Baylor University

Educational Institution; 1001-5000 employees; Higher Education industry

July 2001May 2002 (11 months)

I was fortunate enough to be awarded an assistantship during my graduate studies at Baylor, working primarily under Dr. John Tisdale and Dr. Amanda Sturgill. I assisted these two professors with class organization, grading, and journal editing. In addition, I was given the opportunity to advise beginning journalism students working at The Lariat. This experience helped fund my graduate education and made me appreciate with greater understanding the financial and academic challenges faced by all students.

Web Services Specialist

Datapark, Inc

May 1999February 2000 (10 months)

Met with clients and developed web strategies for implementation.
Oversaw and conducted web and graphic services.
