Copy writing and Marketing: International Women’s Networking Group Rotterdam

I joined the International Women’s Networking Group (IWNG) Rotterdam for both social and professional purposes. I soon became involved with event organization, and eventually took on the role of establishing the Welcome Committee. In addition to coordinating programming, I also write for the website and assist with the social marketing strategy.

Copy writing: Food Heroes Podcast

Food Heroes Podcast publishes interviews twice a month with a variety of change-makers working in the food industry. As part of the content, the podcast needs show notes for each episode.

Marketing: Doux South

As the company grew, Doux South’s marketing efforts fell behind as resources were allocated elsewhere. I designed a marketing strategy to reinvigorate the brand’s community, promote their new products, and encourage engagement with both retail and wholesale customers. I continue to manage the strategy’s execution in an effort to increase product sales and increase brand presence online.
