Hire me

Things I dig: bikes, snorkeling, amazing customer service, cool eye-wear, human connection, purple, basset hounds, beets and beats.

Things I want to do: bike the Pacific Coast Highway, help small brands build a loyal following, see LCD Soundsystem one last time, eat more tacos, show folks the power of social media, and make you laugh.

My street cred:

- As of 10/13/2014, I'm the Media Coordinator for High Brew Coffee. (Ready to drink cold brew coffee from Austin TX.)

- Freelance consulting on all areas of social media: strategy, listening, engagement, community management, and analytics.

- 2 years of social listening for Fortune500's/1000's with Ants Eye View and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

- 5 years with Whole Foods Market. Training Team Members and offering world-class customer service to each and every stake holder involved with the company. Researched a ton of facts about every kind of ingredient you can think of to stay ahead of the game. Game? Built lasting relationships with customers based on a mutual appreciation for natural foods and genuine connection.

- 2.5 years were spent with Sweet Leaf Tea managing all aspects of consumer services, including creating and establishing a social media presence for the company. Former voice of @SweetLeafApril & @SweetLeafTea. Helped keep content and interest going on The Sip, the company blog.
