As far back as I can recall, words fascinated me.
People and their stories, fascinated me.
I loved reading biographies and was that dorky kid in the car pointing out the clever words on the billboard to my friends, who didn’t get why I was laughing.
My discovery of journalism and achieving a byline on the front page (my ultimate goal) was just the beginning of finding my purpose.
After working at three, major-market newspapers in the Phoenix- and Tucson-area, it didn’t take long for me to realize telling people’s stories was what I loved and was meant to do.
Gratefully, that is a key ingredient in every brand’s success, and I quickly discovered how this passion met my purpose as I entered the world of copywriting.
I’m a storyteller. I’m a writer. I’m a brand advocate.
Sharing someone’s success after using a product, or capturing a company’s achievements opened up a world I never knew existed.
And I was hooked.
Who knew sharing community stories, taking complicated subjects and boiling them down into bite-sized, understandable messages could translate so well to sell a product or connect someone to a brand?
Since then, I’ve had the honor of telling hundreds of personal and professional stories as an in-house marketing and communications director at three, multi-million dollar companies, even leading the charge on writing efforts for big brands such as Disney, DreamWorks, Warner Bros. and more to support independent business owners.
On a personal note…
Yes, work is a big part of my story, but there are a few others you may enjoy, too.
I’m a blessed mother. I’m a loved wife.
I’m a garage-gym enthusiast. I’m an outdoor adventurer.
I’m a world-traveler with a bad (or good?) case of wanderlust.
I deeply appreciate local cuisine and the art of cooking.
And I love people.
We can learn so much from people’s personal stories – it’s what connects us to our humanity, our alikeness, and ultimately, our deepest loves.
I believe everyone has a story, and the world deserves to hear it.
And I’m grateful for each person, entrepreneur and brand who entrusts it to me.
