Smart and flexible, Tatum transitioned from the high-stress environment of a luxury resort’s restaurant to working as a credit officer and financial analyst managing a portfolio of more than $700 million in commercial loans. It’s hard to imagine one individual succeeding in both of those worlds. But that’s what Tatum has done — excelled in a wide variety of roles and situations as she’s pursued degrees in hospitality management, finance and business, and — most recently — a master’s in business administration.
Her latest (and, we think, greatest) turn: marketing and public relations. It was an interest that developed when she landed a summer position working on hospitality and events public relations in New York City. She found she wanted to delve deeper into PR — this time in her home state of Montana. During a subsequent PR internship at PartnersCreative, she supported the team through research, data analysis and reporting, while also immersing in our in-depth brand and strategy work for large national clients. Even knowing Tatum’s background of diverse successes, we were pleasantly thrilled to see how quickly she came up to speed and took the lead on projects.
Tatum’s career may have taken a circuitous route, but her experiences have created invaluable customer service skills, and the hard skills of financial analysis have primed her for a role managing increasingly complex and fast-moving projects for our largest clients. She is often a source of calm in the storm at PartnersCreative. An organized, experienced business professional with a technical and financial background, she always has an eye on the future — for our agency and our clients alike.

Six pounds of pup is all Tatum needs. She can wax poetic about her Yorkie Zoey.
