First and foremost I am a life-long student of Advertising, Public Relations, Marketing, Branding and everything that goes with it. I have combined these interests with my love for the outdoors to forge a career in the outdoor industry.
Most recently moved to St. Augustine, Florida where I work remotely as a copywriter for an outdoor E-commerce startup called Wanderlust Outfitters and I teach English to Chinese kids through an online platform called VIPKID.
Prior to moving to Florida, I lived in northern Spain where I traveled and taught English for almost a year. Before my travels in Spain, I traveled throughout the US as a Technical Representative for Kelty, managed influencer marketing campaigns for Inkwell Media in Colorado and worked in various other positions honing my skills at other outdoor companies in Colorado. Among the companies I worked for were Zeal Optics, Fjallraven, and Patagonia. From event marketing, E-commerce, Customer Service, Retail Sales and everything in between I honed my skills.
I look forward to hearing how we can work together in the future, so don't be afraid to give me a shout!
Traveled throughout the entire eastern United States to create marketing material for the Kelty brand social media accounts. Effectively embodied the brand while representing the company in different outdoor and urban settings. Successfully produced four pop-up events hosted by retail accounts as well as booths at two music festivals while visiting retail accounts to foster relationships with outdoor retailers.
I took part in the Kelty/Sierra Designs/Ultimate Direction Gear Rep #Vanlife tour during the summer of 2017. You can find out more about the tour by clicking here.
