"People will never forget how you made them feel."
No matter the project, approaching each assignment with empathy is a skill that can't be taught in a college classroom or at work, and one that sets me apart from the rest.
In my childhood, I was glued to books. I had 'a need for read' not a 'need for speed', I told my parents. Later on, as a teenager, I realized the value in video and how much fun I had filming with my friends and the way you could creatively capture a special moment or share a significant story. I instantly felt compelled to make a career out of combining my life's passions.
After graduating with a BA in Journalism from the University of Nevada in Reno, I became an expert communicator. My role as a multimedia journalist within three newsrooms taught me the value of storytelling and looking at news through the lens of humanity. It's that approach that made me an Associated Press award-winning and 4x Emmy-nominated storyteller.
Cultivating creative content to inform and engage audiences across the nation easily transfers to many parts of our world. After all every one (and every thing) has a story to share. People gravitate to brands and other people they can connect with and relate to each day. I shine when I use words to captivate my readers - no matter the topic. But people also resonate with photos and video. I'm proud to be an overall skilled content creator across all platforms -- whether it be videography, social media or just plain pitching.
