WHO I AM.
Hello! I'm Christine Benway and I am a strategic thinker and innovator. I enjoy everything from creating advertising campaigns, conceptualizing promotions or promotional events, and being a social media influencer.
As a recent graduate of Ithaca College with a bachelors degree in Integrated Marketing Communications with a minor in Legal Studies, I am well versed in creating a strong brand image through advertising, public relations, and sales promotions campaigns as well as researching, conceptualizing, and applying consistent marketing tactics.
Growing up in a very small town in upstate New York. I spent my summers in Lake George, NY swimming, hiking, and enjoying the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. I love the beauty of the northeast, however I had the amazing opportunity to study in Los Angeles for a semester my junior year. As an intern, I worked side by side with industry professionals at two marketing companies while completely immersing myself in the LA culture. I recently moved to the Los Angeles area to begin my career in marketing.
In my free time you can find me coffee cup in hand, listening to music, watching "The Office" re-runs on Netflix, silently critiquing people's typeface choices, or catching up on the most recent social media trends. I love to make people laugh (and laugh a lot myself) and I must admit that I have a knack for baking some delicious desserts. I am eager to expand my views on the world and I am hungry for new experiences. I cannot wait to see what my next step in life has to offer.
