My road in life took a while to figure out.
When I was young, my mom called me the Jabberwocky because I loved to communicate with people.
I loved learning about people and their experiences.
Then in college, I studied anthropology and human culture and studied abroad in Spain.
After college, I moved to Chile, then decided to go to grad school to study IR and Comm.
Then I got a job in PR and decided I didn't love PR but loved marketing, communications and events.
And since then, I've had many marketing / comm jobs in different industries-tech, banking, nonprofit.
Keep following my journey

Being Creative

Day to Day

No one day looks the same! I could be writing articles for a newsletter one minute, work with leaders on talking points for a town hall event the next, and then finishing up by creating a new graphic to promote a new initiative. The most exciting thing about my job is that I don't know what each day will bring. I may have a list of tasks that pop up in the morning but based on what comes up throughout the day, I have to be flexible and adapt to new situations.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

You don't need a graduate degree to do what I'm doing. I pursued my graduate degree because I didn't feel I was done learning and had a passion to continue my education. I think someone in college should take writing and communications courses to prepare themselves for the field, but I also think the best way to learn about the business is by doing it. Get an internship during college and see if you like the field.

The Noise I Shed

From Myself:

"You got laid off during the recession. Going on interview after interview is exhausting. No one is going to hire me."
