Additionally, I contributed to several social media for social good events such as SM4SC. At McKinsey and Company I had the chance to drive digital and social media strategy before leaving to run an exclusive content and digital strategy team for B2B execs at I was one of four female co-founders of BuoyUp, a charitable giving startup, and I then went on to build the content, social media, and PR engine for Enterprise AI company Noodle.AI, garnering national press for the company and awards for our content performance.
