I have worked as a property manager assistant and a student for years before becoming a blogger and social media marketer. In college, I was hired as the photographer for the Pride of the Rockies Marching Band, and I was also the historian of my local Kappa Kappa Psi chapter. These positions grew my skills as a photographer, leader, and social media manager. As a property manager assistant, I responded to emails, answered phone calls, created newsletters, wrote violation letters, and communicated with other office members, homeowners, and HOA boards. I learned time-management, improved my professional writing skills, gained confidence in speaking in front of groups, and learned how to communicate effectively on the phone, in person, and through email.
Now that I am in a new position working for myself, I have applied these skills to growing my following on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. My writing has improved tremendously, and I frequently write for other blogs and websites as well as my own. I am a volunteer at the Dysautonomia Support Network and maintain an active presence in many chronic illness support groups.
