MY SHORT STORY

I'm a writer, communicator, and connector who, evidently, believes in the Oxford Comma. I hail originally from Milwaukee, WI, but for the last seven years, I've been setting down roots in Los Angeles, CA. 

Strengths include relationship building, communication, copywriting, cross-cultural awareness, and mixing drinks. Weaknesses include plush blankets, caffeinated beverages, PBR, and videos of animals with babies.


I focus much of my time and energy on creating deep, meaningful relationships. They have been the cornerstone of my personal and academic growth, and I am consistently in awe of how much I learn from listening to peers, mentors, and mentees alike.


I travel as often as possible to enhance my passport of perspectives, and will never say no to a niche work experience. I lifted stone in the quarries of Wisconsin, cared for livestock on an organic & sustainable farm in central Italy, and served up cocktails in a neighborhood L.A. bar. In short, I always hope to humble myself by identifying "foreign" and "uncomfortable" things, then seeking them out with respect and care. 

I graduated from USC in 2019 with BAs in narrative studies and public relations. I took the most diverse courses available, covering African American popular culture, Asian American literature, modern Russian art, Hip-Hop music and culture, and Chicanx Literature, to name a few favorites.

During my most recent adventure, I swapped and soaked up stories behind a bar. I felt lucky to work in an industry that encourages friends and strangers to gather around a table and speak openly.


Now, I'm a copywriting specialist on the content team at Noodle, where we're working to increase the accessibility to and affordability of quality higher education. I've added to my ensemble of voice and tone while writing engaging, creative copy for over 30 unique programs at our partner universities. 

I hope see you at a bar sometime soon. Cheers!
