Part writer, part digital marketer, part psychology nerd.
100% vulnerable human.
I believe the human experience is meant to be shared. That’s why I’m passionate about the power of words, social media, and great design.
The digital sphere can be a mixed bag, but I strive to embrace the positive while respecting the negative. There are dangers in oversharing, but there is beauty in connecting.
Building relationships is deeply fulfilling — and if I can help even one person feel more understood, I’ll be doing my job.
I’ll graduate from the Wisconsin School of Business in May 2018 after three years of bleeding Badger pride while studying marketing and graphic design.
After graduation, I’ll move to the mountains of Thailand for two months to work as a marketing intern at a small elephant sanctuary called Kindred Spirit.
When I return to the states in August, I’ll settle back down on the isthmus that stole my heart freshman year. I love calling Madison home.
I’m always looking for new connections, so don’t hesitate to say hello! I’m down to take on new projects and have some good conversations.

In my final semester of college, I had the opportunity to work as a content marketing intern under Madison freelancer Olivia Barrow. The experience of getting paid to write in a professional setting made me realize how happy I'd be to work with words for the rest of my life.
I used to think that the only way to write for a living was to be a traditional author, but there are so many other options out there. From short social media posts to personal ghostwritten stories, I was able to do a little bit of everything.
Embracing the power of vulnerability in storytelling made me fall in love with the power — and beauty — of language all over again.
For a year and a half of my undergraduate career, I worked as a website content specialist/front-end developer hybrid in the Wisconsin School of Business’s Academic Technology and Web department.
I loved the ability to build connections with the team over my time there, and I was pushed to grow my professional facilities as I interacted with faculty and staff on a daily basis to help them with their website requests.
I learned to clearly communicate technical concepts in writing, collaborate with multiple people on the same initiative, and balance various projects at once. Exposure to the agile methodology and the importance of prioritization completely transformed my work ethic.
The summer after my first year of college, I was a marketing intern for my hometown’s local news station. I crafted their social media posts, responded to viewers' comments, and independently turned press releases into polished articles.
I walked away with some valuable knowledge about content management systems and social media analytics, but more than anything I gained insight into human nature.
It was mentally challenging to work in an industry with so much negativity, and I began to understand how the right team with the right attitude can make all the difference. We could never please everyone, and monitoring the social media interactions was exhausting at times — but it was satisfying to push through the muck and do my best work anyway.
