What led you to Beth Interactive?

I pursued my Psychology degree at the University of Illinois Chicago. Amid that journey, I had a healthy and beautiful baby girl. I took on many nonprofit roles after that—on top of being a full-time mama! I’ve always had a knack for writing and telling stories, but I never thought I could make a career out of it. 

I always carried this thought with me: I want my children to be proud of their mama no matter the role. Beth Interactive has allowed me to do what I’m passionate about. I know my children will see how far working hard and following your dreams can take you.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I love that I get to bring out my creative side here. I’m a nerd—I love learning. Beth Interactive keeps me on my toes, creating something new or learning something different every day, and I love that!

Ask me about: 

Cool BIPOC-owned coffee shops in Chicago! I make it my mission to go to a new coffee shop at least once a month. I take the time to indulge myself with the experience and write about it.
