Ever since I saw my dad’s name on the byline of a front cover magazine article when I was a kid, I knew I wanted to be a writer. His influence and accomplishments inspired me to seek out journalism as a career. In high school I helped build the school newspaper from the ground up and loved every moment of it. It was fulfilling to figure out what was the most important part of the story and to provide a guide to the school’s latest events.
In college, I received my degree in Communication with a Public Relations emphasis. I worked on the student-run weekly newspaper as a reporter and an editor, but I was also learning in my PR classes and internships that there were other ways to use my love of writing.
One of those ways was helping organizations communicate important messages to their constituents. I spent eight years in San Diego working at a public relations firm. High profile clients depended on my ability to translate complicated information into something that the average person could understand. I did this through newsletters, web content, and emails, comprehensive communication plans for projects, and key events that I planned and executed.
My life changed dramatically when my sons were born, but that did not extinguish my love of public relations and writing. My husband and I started our own board game design studio where I served as business manager, marketer, blogger, game playtester, social media maven, and playtesting event planner. I created and organized five events for local board game designers to playtest their unpublished games. I continued building my skills by running the marketing, website, and social media updates for these events.
Throughout the years, yoga and other fitness activities have been an important part of my life. My prenatal yoga classes were invaluable during my pregnancies and I still practice yoga regularly and feel better because of it. I’ve had great teachers that have a wealth of knowledge to share with their students and I’d love to put my skills to work for them.
If you are a health and wellness business owner with a wealth of knowledge to share with your clients, but no time to get the message out, let me help you, so that you may further your mission of helping your clients be well.
