Quick Facts

I have a bachelor’s in biology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a master’s in English with a concentration in science writing from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Plus, I am currently working in my spare time on a Master of Nutrition degree from North Carolina State University (I would be a student forever if education were free!).

Currently I manage the health and wellness educational platform WholisticMatters.com as a content strategist at Standard Process. In the past, I’ve worked in a few other communication and marketing roles in the health and wellness industry as well in scientific writing for various digital publications covering nutrition, genetics, immunology, cannabis sciences, and more. I have a knack for learning new brands/audiences and tailoring content to that audience. I am an editor and manager of editorial calendars. I thrive on making processes more efficient.

My Management Style

My approach to management – and teamwork in general – is to be as open and transparent as possible. I’m looking for ways to get things done, and done well – avoiding red tape instead of seeking it out. I manage my own list of priorities and expect my team to prioritize as well; I’m not the type of person to overexaggerate my stress or workload to feel more important.

My goal in a professional environment is to make the hours we spend in our jobs maximally productive and fulfilling. That being said, I’m also passionate about a healthy work-life balance, for myself and my team. I believe that making time for life outside of “the office” (in quotes here since so many of us work remotely these days) helps us be more effective, efficient, and focused when we’re working.

Video Editing & Planning

I have experience with editing videos, usually webinars and other presentation-driven projects. I also work often with professional videography teams to create original animations and speaker-driven videos. I specialize in script writing and storyboard creation.

Magnesium: Essential to Human Health

Graphic Design & Planning

My experience with graphic design includes using Canva to create small, basic graphics and working with graphic designers to create larger, more complex designs. I excel in organizing highly technical information in an optimal way for graphic designers to work with.

Canva creations:

Hemp for Pets
Herbs in Pediatrics

Graphic designer collaborations:

The Body’s Two-Part Immune System
The Body’s Natural Detoxification Process

In My Free Time

When I’m not working, I like spending time with my family (husband, baby, dog), reading (memoirs, science fiction, travel novels), watching TV (30 min comedies, quirky limited series, Bachelor Nation), and exercise (Peloton, but not the bike).
