We get a lot thrown at us. Some of it is pretty boring or just poor quality, and the other stuff inspires and convinces. As a multimedia specialist, my passion is to create the good stuff and tell a story.
I spot and shoot photos, craft up graphics, compile and seam video, tweet/gram/share/post/+1/etc., write copy and scripts, and learn constantly to stay fresh and make polished products. And I love it.
Right now, it’s my pleasure to serve as the web content assistant for Daughters of Charity. I produce tailored media, manage social accounts and participate in content creation and editing for publications and copy.
Prior to working at Daughters of Charity Ministries, I bustled about as a local editor for Patch, an online hyperlocal news and community forum. Producing daily content, reporting local news, engaging and building a user base, and managing Patch sites and social media accounts were constant tasks I faced. Through this experience, I also had opportunities to share about upcoming stories on St. Louis television station KPLR 11 broadcasts.
Before that, I worked in the university communications department at Missouri Baptist University as a public relations specialist. I produced media releases, conducted photo shoots, edited photo and video content, and composed editorial content for MBU Magazine.
As a student, I devoted time and energy helping launch MBU’s student online newspaper, Timeline Online, serving as managing editor since its founding in 2010. I was also an anchor, reporter, editor and producer for MBU’s weekly student news broadcast “Timeline.” With a small team of reporters, I helped manage story production to ensure a clean, professional final product. Outside of my university experience, I spent time reporting in New York City for the World Journalism Institute‘s Times-Observer under the tutelage of seasoned journalists.
My attention to detail, organization and eye for interesting perspectives contribute to a desire to creatively and practically share stories. Let’s talk about it sometime.
