Maile Thiesen is a first-time digital asset manager at the University Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) — but Maile is no stranger to digital asset management (DAM). Maile first learned the importance of file organization and managing large photo collections studying photography at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Maile is now helping UMass address their growing DAM needs by organizing their digital assets with the Widen Media Collective.
Maile attended the 2015 Widen Summit, an annual conference for Widen customers to teach, learn, share, and grow with one another. In addition to enjoying the cheese and beer that Madison has to offer, Maile learned important skills to enhance UMass’s workflow and keep employees engaged with the DAM.
