Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Hi there! I'm a creative professional with experience in eCommerce & digital marketing, content creation, social media management, graphic design, copywriting, fine art, and related fields. I'm passionate about using innovation and authenticity as tools for businesses to develop their unique brand personality, connect with consumers, and drive engagement and revenue. With proven communication and organizational skills, I combine attention to detail with a global perspective, and bring energy, motivation, and a positive attitude to my workplace and team. My Bachelor's degree in English/Writing translates to a skill set that fuses professionalism with creativity to handle business communications, and I'm a people-person who is most successful when engaged, productive, and passionate. Outside of the workplace, I am an independent owner of an art business where I sell my original work and have worked as a staff and freelance journalist for Lancaster Newspapers and Lancaster County Magazine. I have participated in creative writing conferences in locations including Andros, Greece; Los Angeles, California; and Houston, Texas to polish my communication and craft. I believe that good storytelling, precise communication, and emotional intelligence are superpowers, and I work to combine these skills with data-driven analytics and technical tools to reach business goals and improve for the future. I am a writer, an artist, a communicator, a volunteer, a traveler, a true crime junkie, a storyteller, a foodie, and a driven creative professional. It's awesome to meet you!
