Être parisien, ce n'est pas être né à Paris, c'est y renaître.
Paris, Autumn 2013. Where I learned to appreciate history, languages, making mistakes, and that lifestyle, friendships and finding something to be passionate about are the building blocks of happiness.
After graduating from Boston University in 2015, I followed my heart back to France. I taught as an English language assistant in a few elementary schools in the Rhône-Alps region of the country for two years. I prepared and led class sessions while simultaneously pursuing a professional writing and marketing experience with remote internships: first as an editorial intern for digital startup Tote Magazine and then as a PR/Marketing intern for Border Free Travels, a creative agency focused on creating content for travel and lifestyle brands.
In 2017, I joined The Vineyard Gazette team full-time to manage the newly created Marketing + Events position for the Vineyard Gazette Media Group. I built the Gazette's marketing initiatives from the ground up, finding innovative ways to increase revenue and continue to grow email subscriber lists. As a result of increased marketing efforts and necessary changes, event attendance increased across all Gazette sponsored events. One in particular had an increase of over 38% in one year.
After a brief stint in NYC, I will soon be joining the Creative Office Pavilion team in Boston's Seaport District in order to strategize and construct inbound marketing initiatives for the company. COP is one of the leading Herman Miller dealers providing office furniture and workspace design consulting services.
