What are you most passionate about outside of being a content creator?

I love to write and got my professional start as a journalist! I’m also huge on family and spend most of my free time with my husband, my parents and my little sisters.

What sets you apart from other creators in the space?

I like to think my voice sets me apart. I really try my best to be relatable and share every aspect of my life with my audience, and people often tell me that it fells like they’re catching up with a best friend when watching my IG Stories, which is basically the highest compliment you can give any creator.

Favorite partnership(s) you’ve ever had?

Working with Coca-Cola! It was so fun to create content for a brand I’ve adored for years (my obsession with Diet Coke is too real).

What platforms do you see being the most influential within the influencer marketing space in the next 2-3 years?

So hard to say! I’d wager TikTok, but who knows if it’ll be banned by then. I love Instagram, so I hope it’s still a major player in the next few years.

What do you see as the future of influencer marketing in the next 2-3 years?

My hope is that brands continue to value micro and mid-sized influencers who are producing authentic, engaging content instead of just focusing on huge names. I may be biased, but I think ROI is surprisingly good for the little guys!
