Since the moment I learned how to hold a pen, I always wanted to become a writer. When the teachers in school used to ask us, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” my answer was always, “An author!” Six-year-old me thought that was the only writing job that existed, but as I grew up, I realized it wasn’t that I wanted to write books, I wanted to tell stories.

So, I went off to the big city of Boston from a small town on the North Shore of Massachusetts where I thought there’d be a lot of stories to tell and decided to pursue a degree in journalism.

I realized that I had a passion for more than just writing and storytelling. I loved working in roles where I got to interact with people and help make a difference. I knew if I could combine those two things together, I’d have my dream job.

With a little guidance, I was introduced to the wonderful world of public relations and realized I could do both of those things! On a whim, I declared a PR minor and decided to intern at an agency – those were some of the best decisions I have ever made.

Since then, I became a 2020 graduate of Suffolk University in Boston where I received my BA in Journalism with a concentration in print/web. During my time at Suffolk, I was Editor-in-Chief of their Her Campus chapter, served on the university’s programming board and was a member of the Journey Leadership travel program. I also worked as a campus tour guide and an orientation leader.

Prior to joining the Castle team, I spent some time as a freelance copywriter and social media manager as well as worked at other PR agencies throughout Boston. All of this has led me to The Castle Group, and I am so excited to continue my PR journey here!

When I’m not in the office, you can find me trying new restaurants and coffee shops in Boston (and now looking forward to exploring Charlestown!), singing my heart out at a concert or binging a TV series with my roommates. Who knows, maybe I’ll make six-year-old me proud and start writing a book!
