My road in life took a while to figure out.
One of my bosses said "Oh, you're a process person?" without me saying it.
I reached out to a department that didn't have a PM and asked if they needed one. They said YES!
I took Photoshop, Illustrator and mini front-end web dev classes.
I learned how to edit HTML emails with help from a friend.

Day to Day

Daily standup meeting first thing in the morning where I review the current project status with each creative team member (Creative Director, Graphic Designer, Copywriter). After standup, follow up on questions/action items from the meeting. Open email or PM tool and address urgent issues. Review upcoming projects and follow up on outstanding items. Look for new projects on marketing calendar or other sources.

The Noise I Shed

From Parents:

"You shouldn't pursue art or music. They're called starving artists for a reason."

I found a position that uses my skills and also supports the creative/artistic process and creative/artistic people. I pursue my creative passions in my free, non-professional time.

Challenges I Overcame

Financial
Financial

Our family had limited means. I was always worried about our financial stability which motivated me to pursue business. I was able to find a middle ground between a creative lifestyle and financial stability.
