August 20, 1990
I graduated from ASU's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, where I learned how to write in a variety of styles, from breaking news stories and objective reporting to press releases and social media. I prefer the latter.
I started as a hairdresser; first in Scottsdale, then in Chandler. In Chandler, I worked at a salon with over 60 other hairstylists, so it was important for me to stand out and promote myself in order to stay relevant. I did this not only through my work, but also through social media. I found that I loved creating graphics and interacting with an online audience so much more than I loved doing hair. I guess it finally just hit me: I'm in the wrong line of work! So I quit my job as a stylist of five years and went back to college to get my degree in Mass Communication.
I'm driven by my passion to see small businesses succeed and connect with their customers on a different level. I have become very connected with small businesses through my work with Judy Wear Boutique and The Cabbage Shed. Small business owners have a fire and ambition that is dynamic to work with, and it is my goal to help many others flourish by creating engaging social profiles and user-friendly websites that will generate more traffic and more recognition to their business.
Not only that, but selfishly, I love doing it - I love designing websites, creating flyers and ads, engaging on social media - all of it. I love gaging reactions and seeing the outcomes. It's just fun, it's a creative outlet for me, so why wouldn't I turn it into my career?

If I'm not behind the screen of a computer, I'm usually at home; I'm a home-body. I have an amazing husband, and two sweet dogs; a pitbull and a Frenchie. You may also see me at the Starbucks drive-thru, shopping for clothes or getting my nails done.
