I am passionate about marketing, particularly for non-profit organizations and small businesses. I believe that marketing should be used for good, sending positive messages that help people to better themselves.
I recently earned a master's degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from WVU with a 4.0 GPA. I have a bachelor's degree in Communications Media from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where I graduated Cum Laude. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., where I live with my family.
I have been working in the digital marketing field for more than 15 years for small businesses and nonprofit organizations, and I own a boutique marketing agency called Little Birdie Communications.
As a strong advocate for usability, I have spent more than a decade teaching through workshops at conferences and through adult education classes. I love teaching people how to make their online presence better through understanding best practices for writing, creating, and managing websites and social media accounts.
My past in-person classes include Writing for the Web, Design A Business Website, Social Networking: The Basics, and Design A Personal Website.
In my free time I enjoy reading, DIY crafts and home improvement, watching TV (The Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who and The Walking Dead are favorites), and spending time with my kids, nieces, and nephews. I am a lifelong Girl Scout, and I believe in making the world a better place, one person at a time.
