Raised in a small farming town in the Rockies by two incredible entrepreneurs. Living on a mini-farm and working on communications, social media, and digital media in the Inland Northwest. Podcaster and conversation starter at A Thousand Things to Talk About.
My name, face, projects, and a few ideas have made it around the world a time or two. I believe that speaking to someone in their chosen medium is incredibly respectful. I believe that asking questions is one of the most respectful acts you can engage in.
I do marketing, communications, digital media, and content creation. Currently, I head social media for one of the Inland Northwest’s largest and most beloved credit unions, STCU.
In the past, I’ve worked for a variety of employers and clients, and excel at finding, crafting, and communicating powerful, story-driven messages in a variety of platforms. With extensive experience in public speaking and public presentation, I can help translate between groups with widely varying goals and communication patterns.
I have served at various points as a magazine managing editor, a professional blogger, SEO consultant, website rebuild project manager, marketing coordinator, product photographer, and event manager. For more information about my professional experience, please visit my LinkedIn page.
I ask questions. A lot.
I have a week-daily podcast that explores a different conversation topic every day. Check it out at AThousandThingsToTalkAbout.com
I also love creating, even in my off-time. I’ve run two food businesses, one funded through Kickstarter.
My photos have been licensed for use in a variety of places, I write now and again, and have been known to occasionally drop in on a poetry slam.
I live with some of my chosen family on a 1.25 acre mini-farm and orchard with dozens of fruit trees and a large garden. We make our best effort at living in a manner that is as sustainable as is practical, honoring the cycles and patterns of the planet Earth. This priority brought Pete, my husband and I, our 15 minutes of fame thanks to Wedding Cans.
