After earning a B.A. in Economics and Global Studies from St. Lawrence University, Marie Northrup joined AmeriCorps to serve in the Urban Fellows Program, tutoring in-need students, grades 9-12. After the school year ended, Marie decided to embark on a new adventure, so she packed up her life on the East Coast and embarked on a cross-country drive to Denver, CO. On her own and in a new city, Marie was in search of a career that allowed her to be creative, outspoken, and invested in – she found that at Booyah. Marie joined Booyah in 2016 as an Associate Coordinator, and now leads a team as a Senior Director, developing strategic media solutions for brands in the financial, travel/tourism, and education verticals.
Loving Booyah’s fast-paced atmosphere, Marie approaches each challenge with a can-do attitude. Never content to hit a client’s goal just once, Marie lets her competitive side shine through often, pushing her strategies to outperform themselves time and time again. To her what sets Booyah apart isn’t the industry or the work: it’s the team. “It’s not always sunshine and roses but having people on your team who you can trust and be vulnerable with, that’s what makes working at Booyah so special.” When she’s not working, Marie is outdoors soaking up the sunshine with her dog Maple.
