Professional Experience

As an entrepreneur and experienced Content and Digital Strategist, I've created and executed global content strategies for a broad range of B2C and B2B multinational Fortune 500 companies, small businesses across a variety of industries, and educational and non-profit institutions. I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and intrigued by the influence a well-told story can have, as well as what we can learn from an informative piece. The right story can influence decisions, encourage thought, and just maybe change lives. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are worth writing about. I am a curious and proactive Strategist & Writer with particular interest in health, fitness, travel, environmental stewardship, & animal welfare.
