Where did you start your marketing & communications career?
I interned with Jacksonville’s largest ad agency, but my first job out of college was a writer/producer at a Jacksonville television station. However, it didn’t take long for me to see that I would have to move around to advance my career in that field. I quickly transitioned back to the agency world. I really enjoyed working with clients and creatives!
How were you introduced to the ICX Group?
I had a family member that served on a local board with a team member here at ICX. I was introduced to network about new career opportunities and low and behold ICX needed a Marketing Director themselves! From there I worked with our firm’s leadership and we decided to launch a division that is specialized in marketing and creative recruiting. It has been a fun and exciting career change for me!
And what do you love most about doing specialized marketing recruiting now?
I love meeting and working with people. One of the things I loved most with working at ad agencies was both working with client’s to meet their needs and also bringing in new talent and mentoring them and seeing them grow and expand upon their careers. So those two passions have parlayed well into now doing specialized marketing and creative recruiting.

Fun Facts about Tahoma
Who did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a writer. I even used to publish my own town newspaper and go door to door selling them! So funny to think back on that and how news has evolved to all be digital.
Beach or Mountain vacation?
I love any vacation but would probably choose the Beach – I love the sun, sand and ocean! That’s one of the reasons I love Jacksonville so much!
What’s the best show you binged recently?
Ted Lasso! Hands down! Love it! Everyone could use some Ted Lasso in their life!
Where are you if you aren’t at the office?
Most likely the soccer field. My son plays travel soccer, and we travel all over the state and to Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina with it. The driving can be grueling and time consuming, but we are trying to enjoy every last second of it while we can!
