Professional Summary
I've been a professional blogger for years, maintaining thegirlwho.net since 2005. It was named one of the top 10 mom blogs in 2012. A top trait of every successful blogger is a healthy obsession with social media. I've worked for years to increase my friends and followers and have amassed and maintained a large, loyal following. As a result, I know what makes people click. I know the slugs, status updates and photos that earn page views.
My blog, plus my current position as writer at Disney's lifestyle online magazine, Babble.com, as well as my news producing background, has inspired a fascination with social media and the latest Internet trends. I'm always on top of what videos/blog posts/photos people are sharing, liking, recommending and talking about online as the minute I see something go viral it is my job to write about it for Babble with my own unique angle.
I know the websites rising in popularity, bookmark them and check them several times a day for new content. Current favorites include Buzzfeed, Upworthy and Slate.
I excel at managing people by playing to each individual's strengths and always communicate clearly and concisely.
