I'm very proud of the work (and the continued work) of my Capstone Project, which was to brand the General Services Department of the City of North Port. We use the hashtag #SpreadingSunshine. If you search this on Facebook, you can find the posts. There are more to come. I'm working on some contests and other ways to spread the story. I also was part of the team to develop the City's website at www.cityofnorthport.com. I think its beautiful.... We just received a What's Next Award from Vision Internet.
As the Community Outreach Manager for the City of North Port, I oversee marketing, public relations, and communications. My office is located in the City Manager's Office. In my role, I wear a number of hats, including: the brand manager; the editor/publisher of the City's quarterly and monthly newsletters; the webmaster; social media manager and administrator; and so much more. I oversee the City's marketing efforts (advertisements, etc.); I plan City events (groundbreakings, ribbon cuttings); I produce many of the City's marketing and informational brochures and printed products; I lead information tables at City events and other outreach efforts; and more. It's the "and more" that keeps me really, really, really busy.
music (guitar, singing, festivals, concerts, and all activities related to music), reading (I read a lot), writing (writer's write, and I write)...

The campus. It is so beautiful there – from Century Tower to the Student Union to Weimer Hall. I miss the campus life. There were always these awesome places to study and soak in knowledge. UF’s campus is so diverse, too. There are people from all over the world who go to school there.
