Hello Friends! I'm a board game and toy enthusiast who has been passionate about play my entire life, but officially started in the toy business in 1994. That was the year I started as media manager and a few years later became VP of Marketing for Patch Products (more recently known as Play Monster Toys). In 2005, I ventured out on my own and founded TAP Marketing, LLC. As a consultant, my mission is to help inspire a happier world through play. With a demonstrated history of working in the industry of Play/Toys/Entertainment, I have an entrepreneurial approach to my client's businesses and am skilled in Management, Strategic Planning, Influencer Marketing, Copywriting, Consumer Products, and Advertising. I am a proud Wisconsin Badger holding Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
