all about em.
While I'm not entirely sure what my first word was — because hey, I was a baby — I can undoubtedly confirm that I have always been chatty and inquisitive. For people who know me, it's no surprise that I wound up in the communications field, but for me, it was a little bit more of a process. While attending school at Hampshire College, my academic advisor of 4 years even deemed me the quietest talkative person he'd ever met.
I've come out of my shell quite a bit in the years since graduating, which is in large part due to a career in publicity. My time at William Morrow (an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers) not only allowed me to work with a slew of incredible authors and hone my professional skills, but it also encouraged me to be outspoken about my projects, meticulous in my everyday, and affirmed my love of storytelling.
Leaving a career and life that I loved wasn’t easy but I didn’t have much of a choice. For more information on why I left my job, read this blog post. My decision ultimately lead me to start Little Lion Communications, and that’s one I could never regret. With the help and guidance of my incredible support system, I was able to create a business that works with a diverse selection of businesses, brands, and individuals on an array of marketing, pr, and photography projects. Since founding Little Lion Communications in 2017, I have thoughtfully expanded my services to offer clients a cohesive experience and tap into my complimentary talents.
To all of my past, present, and future clients, I am so thankful for the opportunity to work together!
While I could walk you through the minutia of my previous work and experiences, I thought it would be more fun to share some personal factoids:
My favorite scents are citronella, gasoline, and leather
I've never met a mushroom I didn't like
I read ... a lot ... but I've only ever re-read two books: The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Great Expectations
If you let me, I will put sriracha on everything and cut the tags out of all of my clothes (sorry mom!)
I have an unshakable love for Mel Brooks
Growing up, I always wanted to be Bobbi Brown
