Info​
 

Food and sport-related concepts that inspire people into action are my favorite brands to support. My second-grade teacher labeled me a writer, and it stuck. My writing skills were heavily developed through journalism in college, in professional copywriting and lean-aligned project management with a heavy emphasis on organization and efficiency. I'm a natural leader, proven through collegiate-level student government positions, various management roles and five years of entrepreneurial endeavors. I love inspiring and coaching others to unfold their potential to meet personal and team goals.
