Nehemiah's CMO With Staying Power

Nehemiah's Kristen Schumacher talks using her voice, defining success, and her entrepreneurial spirit.

I've had the opportunity to connect with and learn from executives of major brands at MediaPost's Insider Summits. In the process I've discovered some truly impressive women -- not only for the work they do, but their stories behind the scenes. With Brand Insider: BTS, I get to pull back the curtain on some of the most influential women marketers as they talk about their path to success: the twists and turns, obstacles, inspirations and the valuable lessons learned along the way. 

“When I look at an opportunity in my life that really transformed the trajectory of my career, [it] was having a second chance opportunity where I transferred to Ohio State, and that department took something that was so horrendous for me, that was so traumatic, and gave me an opportunity in a platform to use my voice, to turn something so negative into something that I could champion.” After being drugged and sexually assaulted in college, Nehemiah Manufacturing’s CMO, Kristen Schumacher, made it her mission to stand-up for women and help change the dynamic of how assault victims are treated on college campuses. In this episode of Brand Insider: BTS, Kristen says if by sharing her story, as painful as it was, helps even one person, then it’s worth it. She talks about the importance of understanding "her why," learning from past failures, and giving people the opportunity to rewrite their story. You can watch the entire conversation here:
