A vocal community leader and writer with a strong background in digital marketing, event organizing and community engagement.
I put my communications and coalition-building skills to use for individuals and organizations that are committed to building better, more inclusive communities.
In addition to consulting for values-aligned projects, my work includes promoting intersectional feminism with Feminist Oasis; organizing TEDxPortsmouth, Portsmouth’s annual TEDx conference; freelance copywriting; and writing about feminist issues.
I employ unique and creative approaches for community benefit. My expertise spans a variety of industries, applications and issues, and projects that are the best fit for me often exist at an intersection of these experiences.
Marketing & Communications Professional
I honed my tech chops, organization skills, ability to craft effective messaging and knack for running successful campaigns during my years as an administrative assistant, social media manager, copywriter and then communications director in the graphic design and digital marketing agency world. I developed and shared my expertise in copywriting, data-driven digital marketing, website optimization, content strategy, social media strategy and traditional media outreach alongside industry and community leaders.
I organized a variety of networking groups and spoke regularly at events, on topics including effectively using Evernote to organize your life and efficiently using social media as a small business. I also worked hand in hand with fellow Directors and co-founders to manage proposal writing, RFP response process and new business management.
I also created and authored the weekly #PortsmouthLOVE Letter, a popular weekly newsletter which was sent out most weeks from 2014 through mid-2018. I still update the #PortsmouthLOVE Instagram account and occasionally publish web articles on PortsmouthLOVE.com.
