Telling the stories that matter. Helping others tell their story. Technology has opened many avenues for businesses to spread positive messages about their accomplishments, and my experience will help navigate the sometimes daunting world of blogging, social media and website construction. A background in management provides the skills needed to lead a team on marketing professionals, designers and write, craft plans for long-term success and streamline often inefficient communication and marketing offices.
