I grew up around the written word and in high school worked in the family business, Leonard Publications, where I managed the firm’s email marketing. I have worked in business development, sales, and account management since college.
From face-to-face lead generation for a solar company, to selling office equipment door-to-door, to cold calling while working in the data center and transportation sectors, I have a broad sales and marketing background—and my communications skills are an asset in delivering a message that resonates with and for my clients.
On the volunteer front, I have been assisting my college fraternity’s advisory board for several years, editing letters that inform alumni of the philanthropic, recruitment, and scholastic work and accomplishments of Virginia Tech’s TKE chapter.
Now I am applying my writing, editing, LinkedIn, and business development knowledge to support small business owners, salespeople, career changers, and creatives including videographers, photographers, and graphic designers.
