Isabelle has always been a strong advocate for mental health, and believes that it is significant to create a safe environment for those to share their inner experiences. 


“It can often be unsettling to share our struggles, and I believe that we are not built to process emotions alone. In order for people to grow and become their authentic selves, they deserve a space that will allow them to be truly seen and valued for who they are. Through my work as a multimedia marketer, I hope to demonstrate these values, and promote our understanding and advocacy for those who are looking for a place to start.”


Through her involvement in the community and numerous campus organizations, Isabelle has come to the realization that digital and creative marketing is her ultimate career choice. She has gained a well-rounded skill set in consulting and content creation, and hopes to learn more in that realm. As an active member of the American Marketing Association, Isabelle has developed marketing strategies for different startup clients, which has allowed her to promote companies across multiple platforms. The prominence of social media has made it important for startup companies to have an online presence, and Isabelle’s experience as a social media officer has been a driving factor towards her passion within digital marketing.
