Rhea who? 


Passionate about visual storytelling,with a background as an art director, helping our clients come to life with visionary craft.

As a leader, using my background as an educator to lead from a place of curiosity, patience, enthusiasm, collaborating together to output strategic groundbreaking creative work.

Starting in 2003 as an Art Director. Currently with IPG HEALTH at FCB Health NY. Previously, DDB NY, McCann Health, Dentsu / mcgarrybowen, JWT Germany, Havas Worldwide, BBDO, Periscope. I also have freelanced with incredible agencies like 72andSunny, Vayner, Droga5, Saatchi & Saatchi, Decoded Advertising.

My proudest accomplishments came from working on the briefs no one else wanted to touch.  Making something great under the radar.(it’s always fun to surprise people with what COULD be done!)

In my after work hours I was a long-standing teacher at the Miami Ad School in Europe and North America where I grew and developed talent.

I live in Astoria Queens with my dog Beau. In my free time, dedicated to sports and nutrition using my online platform to coach others who want to get fit. Currently training for the Brooklyn Half Marathon.
