info​
 

I've had the opportunity to work in an array of industries including Higher Education, Public Relations, Sustainable Materials, Insurance, Sales, Finance and Customer Service. I relocated from my home state Missouri to Atlanta, Georgia in 2008, where I am currently located. However, I am looking forward to spreading my skills across city and state lines. 

My passions, both professionally and personally, are to push the envelope, promote community engagement, and create meaningful messages. I have an endless need to learn and grow. I work for what I believe in and believe in all the work I do.
