I’m working with a PR firm branded to help small- to mid-sized business entrepreneurs and startups, while also serving independent podcasting clients and overseeing all things podcasting; from finding interview opportunities for clients and networking with industry professionals to producing our own shows.
I host, edit, and produce a podcast, The Thoughtful Entrepreneur, which encourages entrepreneurs to share not only their expertise but their stories and their hearts. We believe that every person has a unique message which can positively impact the world.
I was recently asked to lead the "New Podcaster Primer" at Podcast Movement 2018.
Another focus area of mine is coaching clients one-on-one on Twitter marketing, helping them take advantage of social media's immense clout to build their influence (and profits) among potential customers. As a member of the Social Media Marketing Society, I keep my fingers on the pulse of what's happening in social media.
My career in podcasting began in broadcasting, as a volunteer call screener turned traffic reporter on a small community radio station. I eventually became the production manager, a podcast producer, and a co-host. Since then, I’ve been doing independent work as a podcast editor and producer for various types of clients.
I went to college right out of high school but did not move beyond an Associate’s Degree because the major I was searching for didn’t yet exist. I opted to get married, have kids, and homeschool instead of getting a degree in nothing. In 2017, I earned my B.A. in Communications: New Media from Southern New Hampshire University.
At school, I became fascinated by two major influences in the social media universe: Twitter and podcasting. I was introduced to Twitter through a weekly University program and was quickly sold on the speed and ease of communication and relationship building that happened there. I see Twitter as the place where "real engagement happens" and I feel the value of Twitter in building business relationships is only beginning to be mined.
In my Social Media Marketing class, I once spontaneously took over to teach the unit on Twitter when our teacher admitted to not knowing much about it. My enthusiasm was contagious and fellow students were hashtagging and posting their homework assignments before the class was over.
I was raised as a United Methodist Preacher's kid but converted to Catholicism in 2008. A lover of all things geeky, I’m a master of Star Trek, Doctor Who, and Psych trivia, and all the quirky things that are implied. I’m frank and funny, spontaneous and witty, and an all-around awesome person to talk with. While I was at home as a full-time mommy and managing my children's homeschooling at the same time I was studying for my degree I learned how to FOCUS! and honed my skills as an effective multi-tasker.
