I’m a writer, multimedia creator and digital strategist.
This past May I graduated from the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism with a Bachelor’s degree in Strategic Communications and a minor in Entrepreneurship. In high school I started two local non-profit organizations that, to date, have collectively raised over $100,000 in domestic and international benefit. My philanthropy introduced me to many people my age whose experiences I later had the privilege of writing about in my first book, which I published as senior in high school.
Focused on the millennial generation, I went on to build a personal brand in college speaking publicly about the challenges faced by millennials, and how those I knew overcame those challenges in the face of their own adversity. As a Sophomore at Mizzou, I published my second book and began taking my message to other universities, speaking at the University of Tulsa, Central Michigan University, and Louisiana State University, to name a few. My networking most recently led me to get involved as the co-founder and head of marketing and communications for a New York City based tech startup that raised $105,000 in pre-seed capital.
