Currently looking for long-term projects or full-time employment with the right company. 

I'm an English-major-turned-marketer, and have spent the last few years writing about and connecting with the entrepreneurs and dreamers that I love. With a knack for building communities and tackling what's ahead of me, I've established myself as somewhat of a powerhouse, despite my diminutive stature.

I enjoy challenging freelance projects and collaboration and happen to be available for a variety of different gigs. I hear I'm a blast to work with, too.

Specialties: Blogging, Social Media Strategy, Community Management, Client Relations, Content Marketing, Project Management, Communications, Event Management, Volunteer Management
