I have been in the marketing and digital/social media industry for 8 years. Most recently, I managed digital/social media for a large healthcare system. I am currently managing multiple social media communities for Don't Panic Management.

What I read

ALL THE THINGS. I love all books except science fiction (with the exception of Fahrenheit 451, A CLASSIC) and romance novels. Currently reading "Thrive" by Arianna Huffington and "The Empathy Exams" by Leslie Jamison.

Side projects

In addition to my work with Don't Panic, I am a freelance Digital Project Manager for a web development agency based in Cincinnati, OH. I am also working on expanding my own technical skills (so much to learn!) and trying to write as often as possible.
