A few MORE things that YOU SHOULD PROBABLY knOW
My last official "job title" was Librarian, doing marketing and community development for a major public library. I have a Master's degree in Library and Information Studies, which means I'm exceptionally skilled at taking complex information, organizing it, and sharing it with audiences in a way that works.
I thought I was going to be a therapist (and did three years of intensive training), until I realized that I'm way more interested in helping people explore their work, their creativity and their businesses. Luckily, that combination -- a sense of deep curiosity, and the ability to ask good questions and then really listen -- lends itself perfectly to brand strategy and copywriting.
Above all, I believe in wonder, and magic, and love. And that's what I try to bring with me into every moment, every project. I think that massive shifts are needed in what work and business look like, and I intend to be a part of them. My version of professionalism includes laughing, crying and talking about astrology, so don't be surprised if I ask you about your sign (as well as your rising sign and moon, of course).
I am: Aquarius, with a Pisces Moon and Libra (or possibly Virgo) rising, in case you're wondering.
