Content Specialist

“Your direction is more important than your speed.”

Q: How did you come to Digital Storyteller?

A: I applied to Digital Storyteller in 2020 after Magdi posted about an opening on LinkedIn. After months of freelancing as a COVID graduate, I was notified right away that the position had already been filled and was super bummed. Magdi told me they would keep me in the loop if they decided to hire more content specialists! I thought it was a nicety, but the following month, Magdi reached out saying the position had reopened. One thing led to another, and here I am!

Q: What’s one thing most people don’t know about your education or upbringing?

A: I was born three months premature so I spent a lot of time in and out of the hospital as a kid. Although the experience was traumatizing for my parents (sorry, Mom!), it makes me cherish life all the more.

Q: What are your 3 favorite books/ podcasts?

  • The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo
  • The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success – A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams by Deepak Chopra
  • Mine! I have a podcast with my childhood best friend called “We’re Not Dating” about navigating life in your 20s.

Q: If you were to look back from the age of 80 and tell yourself anything, what would it be? 

A: I think I would tell myself to breathe, “Be Where Your Feet Are.”
