03 EXPERIENCE

2018-2020

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

In December of 2020, I earned my degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Management from California Baptist University. I graduated two years early Magna Cum Laude, was appointed Provost's List, and was inducted to the Chi Iota chapter of the Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society. Working with businesses and teams of 1 to 10 (or beyond), my management degree is an asset to my everyday communication process in eCommerce.   

2011 - CURRENT

SOCIAL MEDIA GURU

Since joining Instagram in 2011, I've taught myself the consumer, influencer, and business ends of the platform. On the influencer end, I reached a 21k following + proposed multiple collabs with brands all around the world at age 13. On the business end, I ran three online stores since 2014, gaining experience in influencer marketing, growth strategy, product placement, analytics, + handful of other crucial components. 

2020-CURRENT

FREELANCER

With a specialization in Shopify, I digitally assist in tasks such as Shopify Design + Development, Social Media Marketing, Digital Strategy, Setup & Migration, App Integration, and Consulting. I've worked in dozens of niches with my growing international client base and have acquired Top Rated status (in the top 10% of freelancers) on the UpWork platform.

  

2017-2021

STORE OWNER
& DIRECTOR

Online Women's Clothing Store Owner with first-hand experience with social media strategy, buying, strategic media management, email marketing, influencer outreach, fulfillment, site management, and Shopify transactions on an international basis. My experience as a business owner allows me to consult and share best practices with similar businesses in the eCom space. 

2017-2018

NORDSTROM AMBASSADOR

Selected as a participant via creative entry, I was able to work with the only Nordstrom store in the state of CT. I gained influence to Nordstrom Buyers, behind-the-scenes access to projects & events, hands-on education in the fashion industry, and connections during this program. It also allowed for corporate insight in a professional environment with design, marketing, visual, and styling, that has helped integrate "big picture" thinking when working with small businesses.

2014-2016

ETSY SHOP OWNER

At the age of 14 and using only Instagram to market myself, my first business was on Etsy where I managed all orders, graphic design, social media, grew brand awareness, international launch, & worked with customers ranging from individuals to gyms for large team orders.
