Hi there! I'm a big fan of snail mail, coffee, Bruce Springsteen, and early mornings. After college at Iowa State University and 2 years as an #SAgrad at Western Illinois University, I landed in Bloomington, IL but not for long as I am not headed to start a new journey in Fresno, California where I will be harnessing my social media skills and passion for community. I believe that social media can bring people together and I do my most creative thinking on long runs. I love almond butter that comes in individual packets and reading the posts from the contributing editors for TNM blog! I don't go anywhere without my planner and I always have at least 5 to-do lists going at once #hustle.
