I left a 10-year career in the property management industry to pursue the passion I have for problem-solving and helping others find the strength and resources to improve their lives.
While pursuing my Master’s in Public Administration, I sought volunteer projects to help shore up the gaps in my education. Projects such as designing a program evaluation tool, small business counseling, and working in rural southeast Missouri with USDA RD and MU Extension programs have been invaluable to my education.
On the public policy side, the culmination of my experiences both in my professional career and my education have given rise to the desire to approach poverty in an interdisciplinary fashion; a fashion that attempts to unwind poverty by increasing access to community assets such as affordable housing, transportation, job centers, and quality education.
Public Policy work can be heavy. I draw great energy from creative writing projects; projects such as case studies or press kits that allow me to tell your story in a way that has not been done before. When you trust me to tell your story, I can promise you will love it.
A typical day for me includes social media and public policy related blog posts for a nonprofit, marketing direction/content writing for my private sector clients, industry education, petting the office dogs, and cranking out pages for the book I am ghostwriting. Oh, and lots of coffee and whole foods!
It would be my pleasure to assist with your next project, whether that is research, content writing or website content.
