In 2017, I graduated with a degree in Mass Communication and Media Studies from the Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State University. One of my professors, Dan Gillmor, said that we shouldn’t just be passive consumers of media, but that we should be active creators of it as well.
Journalists are supposed to remain unbiased on what they report. The advantage of creating my own space is that I don’t have to adhere to those rules in this capacity. But, you should know a few things about me.
You will find me volunteering for and/or supporting the following organizations:
- Arroyo Grande Sportsman’s Club
- Santa Maria Valley Pioneer Association
- Leadership Santa Maria Valley
- California Women for Agriculture, Santa Maria Chapter
- Good Ol’ Girls Club
- Facts from Farmers
- American Agri-Women
- National Rifle Association
- USA Archery
- California Bowmen Hunters State Archery Association
- National Field Archery Association
- Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation
- Coalition of Labor and Agricultural Businesses (COLAB)
- Biz Masters Toastmasters
It’s important to note that the beliefs, views, and opinions that are expressed within these pages are solely my own and do not reflect the organizations in which I am involved.
The less important but more interesting stuff:
I recently started graduate school for a MA in Organizational Leadership. I’m a terrible cook, but I make excellent chocolate chip cookies. (And really, dessert is what matters most. 😏) I like wine and grapes, but I don’t like raisins. I watch a lot of old westerns. (Marshall Dillon and Miss Kitty’s unconventional love story is my fave.) I’m never far from my laptop or notebook. I love rainbow sprinkles. Morning is my favorite time of day.
