My career began in ballet, took a detour through neuropsychology, and landed in community strategy. As the first community hire at Wistia, I've built their community to over 20,000 members strong and led their engagement strategy across channels.

What I read

I'm a sucker for fantasy/sci-fi fiction with a strong female lead. Yep, I've read the Buffy comics. I also really enjoy novels like A Secret History by Donna Tartt. These are alongside my Vogue subscription and copies of Calvin & Hobbes. Balance!

Side projects

I've accidentally become somewhat of a video marketing expert, thanks to Wistia. I've scripted, produced, and starred in videos for the community and beyond. I'm also comfortable consulting on video marketing strategy, beyond the production process.
