project manager + creative strategist
where i'm going

 

  Project Management  

I'm focused on social-good initiatives! Organizations who are looking for project management, creative solutions, and omni-channel campaign strategies are the teams who will benefit most in collaborating with me.

  Writing + Editing  

I am always a writer, editor, and creator. Content pillars include travel and, most recently, exploring the intersections of women and climate.

where i've been

I like leading with curiosity, listening to good expertise, navigating roadblocks before they arise, and harmonizing comprehensive scope-of-work with down-to-the-pixel attention to detail. Maximizing the authentic strengths of people, places, and stories is how I have transformed both perception and growth trajectories of brands. I thrive in a fast-paced mix of remote work and collaborations with teams and stakeholders.
