My first poem (an ode to the month of March) was published in The Bear Essential News when I was in fourth grade.
My second publication was in eighth grade (a letter to the editor about the importance of providing better activities for young people) in The Arizona Republic.
Before the age of 30, I became a journalist and publisher. (Shocker.)
By 2005, I was managing newsrooms and advertising, and overseeing the creation of compelling content. Early in the digital age, I began building online content and leading online community engagement and management.
