As Marketing Manager at Random House in New York City, I’m responsible for coordinating and executing marketing plans for authors on the Knopf list, including Jhumpa Lahiri, Julian Barnes, Edwidge Danticat, and David Guterson, to name a few. I feel privileged to work with and help promote such tremendous talent—and a lifetime supply of free books doesn’t hurt either!
I have never regretted my decision to major in English. Not only did I enjoy the challenge and rigor of the English curriculum at UW, I also acquired skills that can’t just be learned on the job: the ability to think critically and write well. These skills have proven invaluable in both the career world and in living a fulfilling life.
