St. Louis, Missouri
The first thing you need to know about me is that I am a multitasker…by necessity and design. I am inquisitive by nature and have always pursued new projects, challenges and opportunities. I’ve held positions in multiple disciplines including: marketing, promotions, pubic relations, social media strategy and community management, advertising placement, writing, editing, fundraising and planned giving administration. I am a social media, public relations and marketing consultant and a frequent speaker and moderator at both on and offline events and conferences, including: Vocus, Social Fresh St. Louis, American Marketing Association (AMA), Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), RealTimeNY 11, ExactTarget Connections 2011, Show Me the Blog and Social:IRL. Personally, I support the excellence and standards of my profession as an active member of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and Board Member of Social Media Club - St. Louis. As an activist and philanthropist, I am a member of the Corporate Sponsorship Advisory Committee at Autism Speaks - St. Louis Chapter and on the marketing committee for Rally St. Louis. My passion for fashion led me to Girls Guide to the Galaxy, an online magazine for Midwest women, where I served as Editor at Large and style contributor. Having also penned a few posts on BlogHer, I plan to launch my own personal blog soon. Stay tuned! My explorer temperament continues to be challenged as my desire to learn fuels my professional career and other personal pursuits. Both sides have taken me down a winding path that rivals that of Dorothy’s in “The Wizard of Oz.” It’s been a road full of interesting characters, adventures and yes, twisters. But armed with courage, wit and passion, I am enjoying the journey and can't wait to see what experiences lay ahead.
