I’ve long been curious, with a deep passion for always wanting to learn more and do more, sometimes to a fault. I remember way back to the first grade when my teacher placed me in the middle-level reading group. I didn’t like this one bit, so I began writing journals — journals! in cursive! with words like “temperature” — in the second grade. When my third-grade teacher told me I couldn’t read a book with chapters, I checked out the book anyway. It turned out to be a pretty good and fast read, even at the tender age of 8.
It’s experiences like these that have fueled my fire to become a professional communicator, even before I knew people could make a living of it. I wanted to write for my hometown newspaper while still in high school, so I’d call the editor every few days, asking to join the newsroom as an intern. That experience turned into freelancing in college. I’ve worked as a niche publications editor, helmed a business magazine, and written countless articles for local, regional and national print and online publications. What I love about this field is the opportunity to tell the untold stories, in a variety of media, and to help others learn and explore organizations and stories they wouldn’t otherwise be away of.
But as the print journalism landscape evolved, so did my skillset as I added social media, digital marketing and web design to my resume. Over the last 10 years, I’ve had the good fortune to train and mentor others in the tricks of the trade. I’ve also had the opportunity to help organizations define their stories, get off the ground and, in some cases, redefine themselves in our social-driven, mobile-focused world where you don’t exist if you can’t be found on the internet.
Let’s get curious. Let’s get you found. Let’s tell your story.
If you’re ready, I’m ready…
