Andy Noller HeadshotAndy Noller, Onsite Business Consultant, SPINS LLC – President Elect, AMA Cincinnati

“I have AMA Cincinnati to thank for helping me land my first “big girl” job after graduation.

Like many new grads, I had the struggle of trying to convince an employer that they should take a chance on me due to less experience. AMA Cincinnati helped me gain experience – but more importantly – I’ve gained a valuable network.”

Gabrielle Walter, Internal Communications Manager at Ensemble Health – VP Member Experience, AMA Cincinnati

“For me, volunteering with Cincinnati AMA has been pivotal to my professional development. I know of no better avenue to gain the experience, exposure, and relationships that help improve one’s “self-product” as well as the “self-brand”. As my experience has grown over the years, I’ve also had the rewarding opportunity to “pay it forward” to emerging marketing stars working with them side by side.”

Travis Nipper, Thomas More Corporate Relations

Even better is being engaged in the AMA where my network of resources, career support, and friendships have made my work and personal life much more enriched.”

It starts with the amazing people who generously share their time, their points of view, and their passion for all aspects of marketing. It continues with a wonderful range of events where participants can sharpen their marketing chops while having a lot of fun and doing some great networking.”

Pete Healy, 7-Year Member

“I am an older college student with junior level experience in this industry. I work full time. I have a passion for getting to know people and helping them get to where they want to go. When I joined AMA Cincinnati, I didn’t know what I didn’t know, and being able to meet new people was crucial. This organization allows me to do just that. Not only am I supported professionally, I have made friendships that will last a lifetime.”

Afton G. Palmer, VP Member Recruitment and Inclusion, AMA Cincinnati
