We all have a story to tell.
Impactful stories are the threads that bind us. I’ve made it my mission to tell those stories, across all mediums of media.
Storytelling is not just something I do, it’s who I am. Since I was a young girl, it was calling me.
I cut my teeth in newsrooms across Chicago and learned to become an expert in all aspects of storytelling. My time at WGN-TV, CLTV, WBEZ Radio, Rivet Radio, Crain’s Chicago Business, Better Business Bureau, Modern Brown Girl, the Chicago Tribune, Home Health Care News, the Gemini Group and WNIN Tri-State Public Media taught me how to identify the real story and tell it in the most effective, concise and compelling way, no matter the medium.
My work has been recognized by a SABEW Best in Business Award in the Innovation Division for “The Rebuilders of Chicago’s Southland," and multiple Edward R. Murrow Award's for Excellence in Innovation, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and best overall Podcast two years in a row for ¿Que Pasa Midwest?, the only bi-lingual news podcast covering the Midwest.
Storytelling, however, is not limited to the newsroom. Though the training you receive from it is invaluable. So applying the skills that only time in a busy newsroom can teach you, I've helped organizations like the Better Business Bureau and the Illinois Association for Medicaid Health Plans reach unprecedented media marks.
So whether it’s writing the cover story for a lifestyle digital publication, cranking out copy for breaking news, writing scripts and voicing for radio, conducting TV interviews in both English and Spanish, shooting and editing video, producing and directing live television, producing and hosting podcasts, drafting press releases and talking points, spearheading press conferences, leading media training, landing media placements or serving as a company spokesperson, I’ve done it all, and I love it all!
Because it all comes back to storytelling and that young girl who was brave enough to follow the dream that's called her since her youth.
It’s these experiences that have reinforced my purpose and passion to create and craft the stories that matter.
My own story is far from over.
This is just a snippet.
