A born outdoorswoman
I graduated with a bachelor of science degree in Natural resources from Cornell University. I'm passionate about the outdoors and, even though I'm kind of a computer nerd, camping, hunting, fishing and shooting sports remain an integral part of my life.
On-the-job crash course in business
As the Director of Operations at the Aspen Global Change Institute in Aspen, CO, I handled all the day-to-day business, including the bookkeeping, grant management, website management, IT problems, conference coordinating, writing, editing, publishing, as well as the marketing for our summer public lecture series. My business, marketing and website design skills grew tenfold in my four years at AGCI.
As part of my job training, I traveled to Palo Alto for Stanford University's Publishing on the Web seminar and I completed a Mini MBA in Non-Profit Management through the University of St. Thomas.
It was an exciting time in marketing
After relocating to nearby Carbondale, Colorado in 2006, I started a new position as an account executive at Backbone Media, a leading public relations and marketing firm that specializes in the outdoor industry.
While at Backbone, I coordinated the public relations efforts and acted as the media liaison for several outdoor brands, including Gerber Legendary Blades, Brunton, Nite Ize, and my favorite, Sitka Gear.
Facebook was just getting started and only few people had even heard of Twitter. I started my own outdoor blog when blogging was still in its infancy.
It was time to start my own business
It must have been the right choice at the right time, because shortly after leaving to start my own business, Columbia Sportswear contracted with me to handle their media relations in their hunting & fishing category.
In 2011, I relocated back to Central New York State. Since then, I've tackled LOTS of different projects!
Don't wait for the perfect time
If there is one thing I've learned, it's to never wait for the perfect time to get started.
There is no perfect time.
You just have to bite the bullet and get started.
It doesn't matter what you are selling, a solid product or offer needs well-crafted copy to move your prospects towards the sale.
