When something happens in the world, I search online to see what people are saying. When something terrible occurs, I go to social to grieve with others. When it’s something happy, I feel joy with a community of other people. That’s the beauty of social media — it’s meant to *social*.
My first job out of college was Social Media Editor at the Chicago Tribune. From there, I moved to Michigan where I was a Digital Producer for the Lansing State Journal and then to the East Coast where I started my nonprofit career as a Marketing Communications Coordinator for First Book. I currently live in Washington, DC, and work as the Marketing and Communications Manager at the National WIC Association.
I’ve freelanced and consulted with various companies and nonprofits for social media and marketing work.
The overarching theme of my life is to help people and make the world a better place, and that’s why I love working in digital media. I can connect with people, answer their questions, and give the information they need.
If you have any questions, comments, or ideas, let me know! I’d love to hear from you.
