While there, she was engaged in consumer and commercial product marketing and communications initiatives and worked with leadership to increase Cree’s brand reputation and competitive footprint. Previously, she served as a senior account executive and project lead with Durham-based advertising agency McKinney where she led campaigns across all marketing channels for several of the agency’s large, national retail brands.
