My road in life took a while to figure out.
Realized my passion for reading and writing.
Got my bachelor's degree in English.
Discovered wedding photography was an exciting and creative way to pay the bills.
Edited videos from some of those weddings.
Didn't want to stop there and went back to school to learn graphic design.
Moved to San Francisco and a temp gig turned into an admin assistant job at an advertising agency.
Mass layoffs became a blessing in disguise, and I began freelance producing at other agencies.
Having wanted to move into non-profit work, gladly took a job offer at the local PBS station.

Day to Day

I send communications to other PBS stations about upcoming Cat in the Hat programming, promotion and events. I plan, organize and promote local events and help other stations book the Cat in the Hat costume for their events. I order Cat in the Hat-themed giveaways, like pencils, bookmarks and books, to send to PBS stations nationwide and to give away at local events. Sometimes we hold screenings or have readings from Dr. Seuss books at local libraries or science museums.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Get a college education. An education is priceless, and you will be exposed to ideas and interests that a person could never find entirely on their own. It doesn't matter if you change course along the way--the experiences you have, the characters you meet and the sense of accomplishment after graduation will remain with you forever.
