GET TO KNOW ME
WHO I AM
I'm a native of our Nation's Capital, surrounded by family and lifelong friends who mean the world to me. On my downtime, you can find me spending time with them, or trying to find the Zen that life has to offer. Things that make me happy include, hanging out with my family and friends, exploring new hiking trails, being terrible at Zumba, getting lost in a museum, taking in a movie, reading a great book, being adventurous in the kitchen and enjoying the beauty of my family homeland - the glorious state of Vermont. I also love french fries, Harry Potter and binge watching just about anything. And my favorite color is orange.
WHAT I'VE DONE
WHAT I DO
I have 20+ years in the digital universe, with experience at digital agencies and major brands (AOL, PBS, Capital One). Throughout my career I've helped organizations in multiple verticals create powerful web, social, email, mobile and search experiences; reach and engage their audiences; and achieve their project objectives. Whatever the project, I've fostered collaboration to deliver on business goals and audience needs. I infuse the highest level of imagination, innovation and client service into everything I do. I also believe work should be fun, and strive to make every project a positive experience for my teams and my clients.
My steep trajectory from web editor at PBS to editor of the AOL homepage wasn't hampered at all by my weekend gig: earning a master’s degree in Interactive Journalism at American University. I brought my multi-tasking skills to Interactive Strategies, where I created digital strategies, managed clients and built a content strategy practice. At Capital One, I designed natural conversations across channels, and found every opportunity -- no matter how small -- to use human language that MEANS something to customers. And at my start-up, Unplug & Hug, I create digital strategy and content to help folks be their best selves.
Here's just a few of my writing samples, websites, blogs, apps, social experiences, infographics, sitemaps and wireframes.
I'd love to talk about them with you.
