I joined The LEGO Group in September 2005 beginning my career in Brand Retail. I have worked for the LEGO Brand Retail Stores in Lakewood, Colorado; Chandler, Arizona; and finally Austin, Texas as a Store Manager. In July 2011, I accepted the position of Community Coordinator for North America moving to Enfield, Connecticut as a member of the LEGO Community Engagement & Events Department. Not only do I love my job, I also have a passion for building! I hold a bachelor's degree in Animation in which I studied traditional 2D animation and stop motion from the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in Denver, Colorado.
