New York Junior League
New York, NY
PR Girl turned Non-Profit Pro. I moved to New York in 2008 from New Hampshire to find out what I was passionate about and pursue my career dreams. After a couple of false starts and a lot of dead end job interviews, I discovered that my true talents lie in helping others and connecting via social media.
Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.
Non-profits, social media, traveling, food & wine, fashion
Right now, I would say director of Communications and Social Media for a national non-profit, but my definition of "dream job" is always growing and changing.
