Passions

B.A. in ENGLISH

With a background in English Writing and Rhetoric, I am able to use logic, reason and emotional appeal to inform and influence others. Because of this, I have a well rounded understanding of the dynamics of communication.

SOCIAL & EMAIL

I love interacting with audiences through digital media. Social media and email marketing are two of my favorite aspects of working in this field. Even if I’m not actively involved in a campaign, I still enjoy diving into the analytics to see how well it performed and if there are any improvements that can be made to better fit our audience.

DESIGN

I can’t go anywhere now without looking around at the marketing and design work. Sometimes it even becomes a factor in my purchasing decisions. Due to my keen eye, I know what it takes to grasp audience attention and keep them engaged through design. I’m also a big fan of UX design and always look for better ways to implement design in web.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Ask any group project member from my past and you’ll know that one of my gifts is keeping team members motivated and striving towards a collective goal together. I have thrived in workplaces with or without project management software because of this.
