who I am

•    Paid & organic social content strategy

When I’m not shopping on Instagram or doing a HIIT class, you can find me watching garbage TV, being outdoorsy in Lake Tahoe (skiing if it's winter, floating with a wine slushie if it’s summer), or hanging out with my two poorly behaved Bengal cats, Juno and Penelope.

what makes me special

I am a creative with a strong marketing mindset, and good work has to work. It can't just be beautiful and inspirational—it has to conform to best practices, it has to be channel-appropriate, it has to be scannable and digestible and it has to make sense to the customer. Sometimes that means using the word "sale." Sometimes the best way to get things done is to make a template. Sometimes the price really does need to be bigger. 

I also live in the real world, where it seems like there's never enough budget or resources or time. This is where I thrive—creating efficiences, identifying priorities, picking the right battles, using resources wisely, and being a good teammate and generous partner in order to Get. Things. Done. 

what I believe

  • Being true to your brand identity will never steer you wrong

  • Success does not have to be a zero-sum game

  • Honest constructive feedback is kinder than avoiding hard truths

  • The best way to say "Free Shipping" is "Free Shipping"
