I’m lucky to have partnered with some fabulous clients. And I’ve created some cool projects on my own. Check out my work below.
This very website, the one you’re looking at right now, was hand coded by me.
I’ve used Wordpress as my Content Management System (CMS) and the Genesis Framework to build out a custom child theme that fits my personality perfectly.
If you’d like your own customized site, feel free to contact me and we’ll talk it out!
Here’s more of my web work:
Central Florida based non-profit, Kids In Support of Soldiers (KISS), needed a new website to replace their old 2007 site and enable them to reach more soldiers. KISS donates and sends packages of goodies and essentials to American soldiers deployed overseas. That’s why I built them a brand new site built on WordPress and the Genesis Framework.
Before, KISS had no soldier sign-up form, no email newsletter, and no online store to market their fundraising gear. Once I was done, they had all those things, plus a fully modern design. All on a WordPress platform that enables them to update their content, information, and events easily and independently.
Like Vice President Tim Proctor said, the results were "night and day" compared to what they had before. The entire organization was thrilled to be armed with a new site that boosts their credibility and their ability to pursue their mission. And that's my goal for you, too. What's your mission?
Unplugged was my first full-fledged web project ever. It was the final project for the Responsive Web Development portion of Skillcrush's Front End Web Development curriculum.
I converted 20 PSD (Photoshop Data) design files into fully functional web pages using pure HTML and CSS. The result is a beautifully designed mock site that looks great on mobile, tablet, and desktop views.
This one-page portfolio site was the first website I ever built and my final project for Skillcrush 101. By completing the class and applying my newly acquired knowledge to this site, I learned the fundamentals of HTML & CSS, the foundational coding languages that all websites are built on.
In addition to my blog, which I do for passion and for free, I also write professionally. My professional projects range in subject, length, and format.
As a lifelong writer and Stanford grad, I approach research and writing fearlessly. It's what I've been trained to do and it's where I excel. I can write about anything you need and you can be sure you'll get nothing but the best.
Here are a few of my professional pieces:
A customer support article for Online Labels Inc.'s Learning Center
I thoroughly enjoyed researching the online marketplace!
"Online shopping is the place to be nowadays, as evidenced by the Amazon / Whole Foods takeover and the rapid deterioration of brick-and-mortar stores. This changing retail landscape means greater opportunity to reach to a worldwide audience. But, you'll need to figure out where on the world wide web to sell."
A customer support article for Online Labels Inc.'s Learning Center
"Before you can get an online shop up and running, you need to have something to sell. Choosing a product can be daunting, especially in the idea stage. But, there are plenty of profitable products you can make yourself and sell online in a jiffy. Here, we'll guide you through the process of choosing a product to pursue for your online business."
Ad 2 Orlando is a group of young, ambitious professionals making waves in advertising, marketing, and creative fields. I sit on the 2017-18 Board as the Web and Blog Chair.
I wrote this piece immediately after the 2016-17 End of Year Celebration. It was my first Ad 2 event ever and I was amped to contribute. Now, I regularly edit and post all of our blogs!
Eating in Mirrielees was an online nutrition program aimed to serve Stanford students living in Mirrielees, the only on-campus apartment complex for undergraduates. I piloted the program as my internship for my Human Biology major.
Mirrielees students face a unique challenge. They are the only Stanford undergraduates with their own kitchens and no meal plans. I saw the need to educate these students on how to use their kitchens and sought to fill that need. The mission of Eating in Mirrielees was to be "Your guide to easy and delicious healthy cooking and eating.
Throughout the 6 months that I ran the program, I wrote and published 20+ Tumblr blog posts, distributed 18+ publications of the Eating in Mirrielees email newsletter, and posted 200+ Facebook and Instagram updates shaped by Facebook Analytics and Google Form survey responses. The result was a boost in home-cooked meals and servings of produce eaten daily. And hopefully an increase in the joy of cooking.
As a tribute to my late Grandma Pat who passed away in 2016, I dedicated a piece about one of our family's closest-held traditions: The Hukilau.
I originally wrote this piece as part of a dance curriculum I created for PE+ at Fair Oaks Elementary School, where I served as Assistant Head Coach and contributed a fair bit of curriculum and translation work. I wanted to teach the kids of Fair Oaks about the tradition I grew up with and loved.
This research paper was one of the final projects of my Stanford career. As a final project for Applied Topics in Exercise Physiology, I explored the label of obesity as a disease, a hotly debated topic in the medical community and beyond.
My research was inspired at the time by my involvement in The Body Positive at Stanford community and my interests in eating disorders, intuitive eating, and body image issues.
It's a good piece of academic work that I'm proud to share. Skim it over if you like, and pay particular attention to the "Health at Every Size" alternative I propose at the end!
As a Creative Writer for Purpose Pioneers, I rewrite client LinkedIn profiles for our LinkedIn Refresh experience. First, I interview my client via phone call for one hour to learn about their professional journey and the purpose that drives them. Then, I craft their story into a brilliant LinkedIn profile that serves their professional needs and goals.
It was a delight to talk with Jen and learn about the love of learning that she's fostered throughout her life. As an Insurance Guru, Jen has built her career off of learning loads of information quickly and helping others through her expertise.
After building a legacy as a Worship Director at Southeastern University, Tomas followed a call to grow as an advocate for others. Along the way, he learned about the devastating consequences of human trafficking in our country, and has risen as a leader in the fight against human trafficking.
Before working at Guideline 401(k) Technologies, I knew nothing about 401(k)s. After working at Guideline, I know everything. As the company's Writing and Customer Support Lead during my time there, I can confidently say I became a Subject Matter Expert.
Pre-tax Traditional or Roth 401(k) contributions are always a big source of confusion and mis-education when it comes to 401(k) accounts. It was one of my favorite subjects and I was glad to break it down for everyone.
401(k)s can be confusing for a small business owner. And they're usually not a top priority. That's why I was happy to help business owners understand their retirement savings by making the subject just a bit easier to digest.
401(k) compliance testing can be some nasty business. But it doesn't have to be. Here, I made compliance testing procedures as nice as can be.
Rollovers, if handled incorrectly, can bleed money out of your retirement savings. That's why Guideline rollovers was one of my main departments of expertise while I worked there, and why I wrote this article for our customers.
I can do this for you, too! Head over to my services page to learn more about my offerings.
