One, two, three... jump. That has always been my motto.
I fearlessly dive into every opportunity that presents itself.
Those opportunities are constantly shifting.
Currently, I co-run a full stack marketing firm called High Tide with my incredible business partner, Hannah. We are a metrics driven agency that can do everything from website development to Public Relations. We specialize in SEO strategy, paid ads, and copy.
That is now, let's take a look at how I got there.
When I was 20, I lied to my parents and told them I was taking a month long trip to Europe with some friends. With about $1000 to my name, I trekked around Europe by myself for a month. That trip taught me about who I was and that I could accomplish anything I wanted if I set my mind to it.
When I was 21, I created a curriculum around long term goal setting and spent a year volunteering in the local public school district working with kids and helping them set long term goals.
When I was 23, I became the CEO of a biotech start up. I gave award winning pitches, generated investment, launched 5 products world wide, translated descriptions of technology into easy to understand tutorials, generated press, created marketing strategies, and successfully brought the company from ideas on a whiteboard into a fully functional and self sustaining company.
I did that while working a plethora of other jobs including PR Firms, non-profits, marketing agencies, and bars. I am versatile, resilient, and (dare I be proud to say) scrappy.
I recently spent a year working with Meltdown Studio where I helped drive 3 times the amount of online traffic to their school and jewelry line and helped create their new website. I secured product placement in national media and created a campaign that resulted in multitudes of free, local press.
Along with the marketing firm, I am currently in the process of editing my first novel.
