Have fun and don’t be afraid to mess up. We all make mistakes, but it’s how you grow from them that makes the difference.
If you asked me five years ago where I’d be today, owning a business was the last thing I’d say. In school I was a great writer, so when the time came to settle on a career path, I thought, why not be an English professor? I was an English major so it just made sense.
After interning with my college English department, I realized that it wasn’t the teaching I loved, it was the communications aspect that got my attention. I loved breaking down complex ideas and bold statements and wondering what made those authors tick — including what the heck Fitzgerald meant in that infamous last line of The Great Gatsby.
Then, a job opportunity in marketing came my way almost immediately after realizing being a professor wasn't for me (you may call it coincidence, I call it #GodsPlan). I worked as a social media coordinator at Texas Tech University but fell in love with the creative aspects of my job. I took in everything I could possibly learn while I was there.
Sure, you could just find free templates online to get it off your to-do list, but I’m willing to bet that what you really want is someone who gets you. Someone who can take your brainchild and turn it into a moneymaker.
This is the part where I come in. For 5+ years, I’ve been helping business owners turn their passions into something tangible. Whether it’s through a full-service brand kit, copy that would make the New York Times jealous, or both, I’ll help you set your business on solid ground.
Fast forward five years, and here I am in the most unlikely place and absolutely loving it. I’ve been able to combine my love for design and my writing skills to help business owners find their voice. Design and copywriting aren’t detached. They work together harmoniously to give clients and customers the best idea of who your business really is.
Branding matters. From your website all the way down to your email signature. Businesses aren’t walking, talking, people, so this is how someone gets to know you.

The Campaigner — Honestly, my Myers-Briggs personality type changes quite often, and I ride the line between extroversion and introversion. But ENFP is true for me at the moment. To sum it up — “Campaigners are independent and creative, always on the lookout for the magic and meaning in everyday life.” 16personalities.com
