Bits and Pieces
I've lived in a 4.3 mile radius since I was 6
I could say Populus tremuloids, and knew what it meant, at 5
I wrote a love poem to a mountain
I didn't listen when my college graphic design professor told me that my problem is that I think too much
I took the photo of a Uinta Chipmunk in Squirrels of the World
The person is part of the package.
I think too much. That's both a strength and a weakness. I describe myself as a compulsive problem solver. It's a byproduct of thinking too much. I think critically. I'm overly honest. I'm fast and keep myself busy.
All that aside, I'm a capable and creative content and communications professional, project manager, and copywriter/editor.
I'm an effective communicator — whether to a colleague, contractor, freelancer, agency, or vendor helping develop content, a PR team, or a customer deciding what to do next.
Just as I overthink, I over communicate. For most folks, that's a strength. For others, well ....
I'm versed in digital and traditional content — from defining objectives, writing or sourcing content to working with designers and developers, and from execution to tracking, analyzing, and acting on metrics.
I'm quick to be recognized as a top performer. I offer knowledge about communications that more novice professionals often lack — including strong knowledge of how to protect a company’s intellectual property and create and/or improve processes.
I'm also forward thinking and will let you know if your content or processes hold hidden opportunities.
More about me:
I have a strong commitment to quality
I'm accountable, and have rock-solid follow-through — when colleagues need something done, they come to me and often report that I make their jobs easier
I have a strong ability to keep track of both the big picture and minute details
I'm quick to recognize opportunities for and pursue integration points across channels
I'm self-motivated and have a get in and get it done attitude and am not afraid to tackle new things
