I am so excited to get to know you! I am a “Sassy” Mamma of two rambunctious boys!
I love leading people into success, empowering others, and adore showing you how you can save with Sass!
I started my career at the young age of 15. I remember being excited to get out into the world! I wanted to be something. Do something impactful. Mostly, I wanted to make a difference.
As I grew, I worked in various industries mastering each role.
I remember my first “job”. I worked at a local newspaper while attending high school. I was so intrigued with the process, I found myself lingering around after hours. I would hop through different departments asking questions and watching. I loved reading the articles, editing them, and learning how a newspaper came into fruition. Ah, to be young again!
I was able to attend University while working full-time at the third largest Investment Management firm in the country. Exciting! I learned the base of my skill-set and was able to formulate my future.
I was exposed to the world of “start-up” companies in late 2008. I quickly joined a new company as the 5th employee out of 6. I helped create the base of their Business Intelligence Platform and assisted with data driven decision making thus creating a solution for their reporting needs. After 4 years, a handsome title, and incredible relationships, that company was officially acquired by a leader in the Medical Industry and is used globally for physician to physician interaction. How exciting to be a part of something from its infancy.
My motivation, drive, & dedication proved my unique skill-set was something that was of value!
I started casually blogging on social media while working full-time in Corporate. I had a strong following of people who loved hearing what I had to say. It was fun, enjoyable, and rewarding for me.
How often do we get to show off our quirky personality, whilst assisting and empowering others to be something amazing?! Sharing knowledge is my “thang”!
In 2016, I met a unique industry. I saw a real need there and became a mentor for many groups in that industry on social media.
Leaving the corporate business social media platform(s) wasn’t easy. That was my safe place.
However, I was ready to have my first son, and time was very short. The dedication to that audience was almost a full time job of its own. My decisions then, were based on my availability to remain true to who I was and professed; present, able, & committed.
After some time off and learning how to become a “mamma”, I jumped right back in with ease!
This is how the Sassy N Smaht Network was born.
As of 2021, I am honored to be one of few Facecbook Certified Community Managers in the world. I was chosen out of a community and sponsored for the exam. I have been so blessed and hope that I can impact as many lives as possible.
