"What if we were all brave enough to tell our story?"
That's the overarching question that drives my life's work.
We all have a story to tell.
From brand communications to hard hitting news, impactful stories are the threads that bind us. I’ve made it my life’s mission to tell those stories, across all mediums of media.
So what's mine?
For starters, storytelling is not just something I do, it’s who I am. Since I was a little girl, journalism was calling me.
I cut my teeth in newsrooms across Chicago and learned to become an expert in all aspects of writing and storytelling. My time at WGN-TV, CLTV, WBEZ Radio, Rivet Radio, Crain’s Chicago Business, Modern Brown Girl, Chicago Tribune and Home Health Care News taught me how to know a lot about a lot, identify the real story and be quick on my feet. This training helped me go on to lead the public relations department to nearly triple media hits in my first year at Better Business Bureau.
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 or landing media placements, I’ve done it all and I love it all.
It’s these experiences that have reinforced my purpose and passion to create and craft the stories that matter.
On a personal note, I am also the co-founder of the Angel Gabriel Foundation, a nonprofit in memory of my Uncle who passed away from cancer. The foundation’s mission is to offer essential support for the fight against cancer and beyond, because nobody should have to face cancer alone.
My own story is far from over.
This is just a snippet.
