As a kid, my dream was to become a newspaper writer. Another dream I had was to make a lot of money. If you know anything about newspaper writing, you know it’s not super lucrative. So I set my sights on advertising, and by the time I was nineteen, I was an Advertising Account Executive for the newspaper in my hometown. From there, I moved on to work for a Fortune 500 newspaper conglomerate, and worked my way from sales to account management, and eventually processes and training.
During my time in newspaper advertising, I got to learn and experience the “new” normal in advertising for my clients—digital advertising. During this time, I was also picking up speed in writing and transitioning into “influencer” status for my lifestyle blog. I’m a natural self-starter and willing to put the work in to learn how to be an expert at everything I do. To me, there’s No Such Thing as something I can’t do, just a series of steps I can take to get there.
All of these things have been smooshed together to land me here at 1909 DIGITAL. A little bit of advertising, account management, writing, social media, and blogging all go into what I do for our clients here every day. I’m so excited to join this team of experts to help make marketing and digital strategy dreams come true.
When I’m not swimming in Instagram posts or wading through Twitter, I’m a mother of three children under three. Yes, it’s as hard as it sounds. Along with my husband, we welcomed our shining star, Clara, to our family in 2018. We decided to add another member to our crew in 2021, but karma blessed us doubly! We now have identical twin boys named Pierce and Beck. I’m telling you, the vibe of my house is enough to make me Out of My Mind.
With all these kiddos, it’s hard to enjoy anything outside of them. It always feels like Something’s Missing, but it’s most likely my mind. If I ever happen to have a moment of free time, you can find me at local blogger events, reading comedians’ memoirs, sneaker shopping with my husband, on the hunt for the best bread pudding in the city, or literally just zoning out in my living room watching people share grocery hauls on YouTube.
My blog’s a huge extension of me and now an extension of my family too. What started as a way to share plus size fashion with like-minded women has now turned into a space where I have shared my journey with PCOS and into motherhood, my journey to becoming debt free, and how I manage as a working mom who still has her hand in home life and the Clarity to express herself online.
I GUESS I JUST FEEL LIKE
In true blogger fashion, I will leave you with a listicle:
5 Facts that Can Speak for Me
- I’m never physically or mentally able to sit through a movie. I will, however, watch a whole series of reality TV in one day.
- I’ll save money by buying bulk meats, then spend $100 on a pair of leggings.
- I only go outside because my daughter makes me. I much prefer the Great Indoors.
- I got an inner-lip tattoo in 2009. Those tattoos have a general lifespan of 1-3 years, but mine is still going strong 12 years later!
- I hid nine John Mayer song titles all throughout this post. That’s how strongly I feel about Mayer’s music.
