After spending twenty years working for all mediums as a communications specialist in New York and Austin, I moved closer to my roots in 2017, our family ranch between Austin and Houston. I restored an old farm house and began working on the garden I had dreamed of for a very long time.
I started part-time work for several small companies, helping them with their online presence and digital voice. I founded @SmallTownGirlMedia to meet this demand - helping wonderful, full-hearted small businesses get a little better at their branding online.
Digital content should remain simple, with beautiful images, and authentic narrative and storytelling. I create all of these elements from existing assets. Most small businesses are too busy to be on social media, too busy to photograph the products they are selling, and they are too busy to "market" to their client base. In short, companies should just be who they are. I help them translate this into the digital landscape to meet their customers' demands as they grow, so they can do what they do best. My favorite companies are small town services and mom-and-pop specialists.

I am an efficiency expert in that I prefer to maximize dollars and time, to create simple and classic processes and results. I like to help my customers do it themselves, I just give them a head start. I work in most mediums to create stories and efficient set workflow. Before SmallTownGirlMedia, I worked most recently as a creative content strategist for a large ecommerce platform.
I am also Founder & Chief Creative Officer of my shoe companies: BOOTLEG: Market, Airstream and Newsprint -- a digital, retail and print world, which I have shelved.
All work here is my photography, unless noted. I am a photographer, copy editor, producer, art director, and am pursuing my Master of Arts in Faith & Culture at the University of St. Thomas in Houston. I have a Bachelor of Science in Journalism from Texas A&M University.
My 100 year-old craftsman farmhouse near our family ranch east of Austin, Texas, is my base, and I am restoring a 270 year-old colonial in The Connecticut River Valley. I travel as much as possible to work and play.
