Hi, I'm Annie. I'm a freelance marketer, photojournalist and writer, who has a passion for community development. My projects have been wide-ranging, from card products in the financial sector to IDP camps in Haiti to business competitions on the south side of Chicago. Mostly, I love work that is innovative, creative and challenging.

Community Empowerment wanted a website that showcased their work in order to increase awareness and donor support. I created the strategy and copy deck, and continue to manage the content.
When chip-enabled cards were introduced to BMO Harris, we created a strategy to alert current cardholders about upcoming changes to their cards. The website shown here is one asset that we leveraged. We also used targeted digital banners, interstitials and ATM screen messaging. The approval process included the product team, legal, compliance, brand team and executive sign-off.
