I'm a multi-hyphenate:
Originally from South Texas, I moved to Austin, Texas to study Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin. Post-grad, I pursued a career in communications, startup management and experiential marketing, which led to the launch of group work in 2016. In the last two years, I've led 40+ campaigns and produced 100+ events and creative projects for culture- and community-oriented companies and brands.
five things about me from the last five years:
1. I launched group work in 2016, with a vision of telling useful and impactful stories, combining my studies in communication, my passion for making sense of things and my background in creating sustainable start-up operations.
2. I also founded #bossbabesATX, a nonprofit that amplifies and connects women and noxnbinary, creatives, entrepreneurs and community organizers, after working in multiple start-up environments. This has been one of the most rewarding projects I have ever tackled, and I still lead its development.
3. In 2017, I was inducted into the City of Austin's Women's Hall of Fame for my commitment to community-building and sharing resources.
4. I’m a musician and a writer. This creative experience informs most of what I do and what I’m interested in.
5. I've kept a column at Forbes about creative entrepreneurship and lifestyle design for the last year or so. Read up!
