My Story

​My skills include developing content through writing, photography, communications, and event planning. Other job skills include grant writing, front-end web management, email newsletters, and photography. 

I've worked in a few different industries to get their message out, from nonprofit to solar to software, and enjoy most the opportunities that afford me the ability to learn about the unique communities served. 

I also have a strong background in nutrition science, and am experienced as a health educator, leading biometric screenings in corporate environments. ​
