Where I've Been
Where I've been:
I've spent my career thus far working on passionate teams and fine-tuning my skills. Each project has sharpened my talent for branding through compelling copy and visual imagery.
Here are some highlights from the past few years:
Joined the creative team at Hanna Andersson as a digital copywriter and was promoted to head brand writer a few months later. I write and oversee Hanna's storytelling across all channels, partnering with the Creative Director to develop the brand voice. Responsible for high-concept campaign brainstorming and subsequently writing all supporting content.
Began organizing with Sunrise Movement PDX, a local chapter of the national youth-led climate action organization. I co-facilitate the Green New Deal team, manage media outreach and press relations, and oversee our social media strategy and content creation. I do all of this on a volunteer basis in my free time. It’s been an honor to be a part of such an exciting movement led by young people fighting for a livable future!
