I'm a communications and content strategist, writer and artist looking for ways to use my skills to encourage more collaboration and creativity across all kinds of businesses.

I bring both right- and left-brained thinking to my work, blending my artistic side with the other part of my brain that earned a masters in business and worked in communications strategy for nine years. 

I've got a knack for listening and understanding the core of a problem or challenge, then finding effective and inventive ways to solve for it. 

I treat every failure as a learning opportunity, don't take critiques or feedback personally and search out opportunities to stretch myself. 

Personal beliefs include:

  • The correct number of plants to own is n+1 (also applies to art supplies, books and magazines)
  • Travel and exploration are key to filling the creative reservoir
  • Supporting the arts and libraries is a must
  • "You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them." - Maya Angelou
