A self-proclaimed social media nerd, Kristie is an early adopter who enjoys all things digital, and immediate! In addition to her love of all things tech, she is an iPhone addict (white, thank you very much) who loves to frequently connect through a range of social media outlets, from Tumblr to Spotify.

Currently working in Chicago as a Solutions Development Consultant on the VivaKi Audience On Demand team, Kristie enjoys the challenge of ever evolving product changes within an emerging industry. The VivaKi AOD suite allows brands to deliver keenly targeted messages to customized audiences across display, video, mobile and social media. AOD wraps proprietary technology and engineering expertise around the world’s most respected technology and data platforms from companies like Facebook, Turn, 4C, and Twitter to create truly differentiated offers.

Before departing NYC, she learned the ropes as an Account Manager at the social media agency Big Fuel. In her role, she found value in her ability to quickly adapt to constantly evolving needs of large brands such as T-Mobile, Philips and AB InBev. Kristie oversaw campaigns from start to finish and having her hand in every facet kept things interesting.

Prior to her time at Big Fuel, Kristie was an Art Manager for Atlantic Records. She spent her days coordinating a design team, booking photographers and stylists, and managing creative assets. She got her start at Atlantic as a Marketing Coordinator, helping brainstorm an array of new media innovations for their many labels. She helped expand the digital music landscape beyond artist websites and MySpace. Kristie has also worked for Ticketmaster and Victory Records.

Graduating in 2004, Kristie was practically a poster child for Columbia College Chicago. A major in Art, Entertainment and Media Management along with fashion design classes prepared her for various internships, eventually leading her on a path to amazing opportunities.
