What is something small business owners have to deal with that you want to fix?
Small businesses often run into the problem of being overworked and understaffed and may not have time or money to put into marketing or a quality website.
I’m happy to be at Enable helping small businesses develop their online content and grow their marketing efforts.
What are your credentials/past experience, for working in your position?
I have a background in writing and art and learned a lot during my past experiences working in marketing and advancement at Christendom, Johns Hopkins, and CMN.
I am excited to expand my skills in graphic design and to use my creativity while producing content for Enable and our clients.
What do you do at Enable?
I primarily write and produce visual content for websites and social media platforms.
This includes writing blog posts, designing graphics, and coming up with new ways to market different materials online. I’m excited to continue meeting our clients in person, to help you engage your audience and create amazing content for your website and social media platforms.
What do you like about working at Enable?
I love the focused and tenacious attitude I’ve encountered while at Enable.
My coworkers are so determined and driven, which is a really motivational environment in which to work every day.
What’s your background?
I grew up at the bottom of a quiet cul-de-sac in Indiana, the birthplace of James Dean, Michael Jackson, and Axl Rose (Indiana produces more than just corn).
I am the eldest of eight crazy kids with wonderful parents that have somehow stayed [mostly] sane through it all. I first came out east to attend Christendom College where I studied English and History and graduated in 2016.
Before joining Enable, I was a CASE Advancement Intern at Johns Hopkins University and then went on to work as a layout designer for The Catholic Marketing Network.
What are the values that drive you?
I am constantly inspired by people who are confident in their ideas and are passionate about their talents and what they do.
Living in a relativistic world full of so much negativity and moral questionability, having values like integrity and perseverance are more important than ever.
Mix good core values with a heavy dose of humor and a good work ethic and you’re ready to face any challenge.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
When not in the office, I enjoy retaining useless trivia about movies and TV, being a nerd about art history, and listening to inordinate amounts of [non-country] music.
I love road trips, reading, and spending time with friends and family whenever I can.
