    AAF Nashville presents an hour of insight and inspiration from some of today's leading women in advertising. Join us as we discuss the state of the industry, achieving the work-life balance, and how women can use their voices today to create stronger opportunities for tomorrow.


    Samara Anderson is redpepper’s not-so-secret weapon, whether she is making people think or making people laugh, she loves bringing people together. Especially when she’s connecting new clients with the teams in redpepper that can get the job done. And when she’s not making problem-solving sparks fly, she’s tracking meaningful trends and insights, making sure we’re always ready for the next big thing. During her 18 year career in advertising she has worked with brands like Slack, Mars Petcare, Deloitte, Cracker Barrel and Claire’s. In the past year she has led redpepper in a growth trend of revenue, AGI and net profit. She is a 2019 40 under 40 award winner and in her “spare” time serves on the AAFN board of directors.

    Kate Gallagher has focused on Digital Marketing Strategy and Implementation for the last 16 years. You may know her from her first ten years at Paramore Digital before founding [K8] Digital in 2014. [K8] Digital is a digital marketing strategy and implementation firm that helps companies accomplish their goals using the internet and digital technologies. Key regional and national clients include Nashville based RJ Young and Abingdon Press. The only thing Kate loves more than Digital is Dogs. She’s on the Nashville Based Critter Cavalry Animal Rescue board, and you can usually find her squeezing a dog walk in between conference calls.

    Megan Brittain is a marketing leader of 13 years with experience across the retail, healthcare, restaurant and non-profit sectors. She is incredibly passionate about people and brands who want to make a difference. Megan is currently a Group Account Director at GS&F. Prior to joining GS&F, she worked at Ogilvy and GSD&M with accounts such as IKEA, Popeyes Louisiana Chicken, Marshalls/TJ Maxx and AARP. Megan is a tiny human and dog mama who lives off of coffee and breakfast tacos.

    Ashley Currie is the Founder + Editor of Urbaanite, an award winning, hyperlocal newsletter and media company helping people experience the culture and soul of Nashville. As a Nashville native with some Midwest living in between, she has a natural proclivity to connect and share people’s stories. With a marketing degree from Northern Illinois University, she has worked in corporate marketing and sales, launched an eco-friendly packaging company and led national multicultural advertising campaigns for Denny’s and United Methodist Communications along with heading up her own web design studio. Ashley is a true advocate for people living life on purpose and outside their comfort zones.

    Tricks and tips to maintain productivity and avoid pitfalls that lead to frustration

    Monday, March 23, 2020  | 11:30am - 12:30pm central

    Being able to work from home, at least a couple of days each week, has been an increasingly popular trend in recent years. Now, with the onset of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it’s a necessity. While it sounds great to be able to work in your pajamas, the appeal can fade quickly if you don’t have boundaries and a plan in place.

    We’ve assembled a panel of advertising and marketing pros to discuss the ins and outs of working remotely. They’ll share their experiences and practical tips to help you avoid potential pitfalls so you can still be productive and enjoy your time working from home.
