I'm a 28 year old North Carolina transplant, originally from a small town in central Oregon. After having the incredible opportunity to pursue a dream of mine for several years, I'm "growing up" and watching that dream evolve into something new. It's funny how those people said your interests and passions change as you get older. They were right but it's pretty cool and always an adventure. My education is in business management & accounting however journalism and marketing is what pays the bills.
During the day I serve as the marketing and communications manager for a suspension company. Early mornings, most nights and weekends I help other people build and develop brands of their own. Presently my "clients" include a TV personality and chef, a web developer, a racecar driver and a 73 year old woman who's launching a reading program for young children. Yes I said 73!
Someday, it's my goal to run my own business or consulting firm. I have many interests ranging from working one on one with others, to speaking to groups as and writing. I have a soft spot in my heart for young people as they transition from college life to the real world. Students that don't get into grad school or who struggle finding a job are often left feeling down and out wondering which way is up.
I'm a fan of marriage and good parenting, two things America really needs some help with. I enjoy reading and writing about leadership, business, relationships and faith. I enjoy coffee, conversation and spending time with my fiance and our dog Lizzy.
