Just a little professional background
Being a blogger practically launched my career. Fresh from college and without much credentials to put on my first resume, I placed my blog’s URL in it to showcase my (embarrassing) writing and HTML skills, which caught the attention of my first employer.
Let’s just say, the guy who interviewed me (who eventually became my first boss) saw potential in my attempt at blogging professionally. I ended up in the Online Marketing industry, and the rest was history.
In the past 10 years, I’ve hopped from full-time office work to home-based setup (and back) because of opportunities I couldn’t resist. I just loooove working, you know? I enjoyed working in the corporate world, and experienced so much fulfillment in my career during those prime years. And I also enjoyed the freedom that came with working remotely. Having a remote job allowed me to go places and to take my work with me.
And now that I’m a mom, a home-based job allows me to be with these two adorable babies I couldn’t possibly leave.
Still, I can’t deny the fact that working at home has its cons, including losing a significant amount of income, which is, let’s face it, important when you’re raising a family.
Fast forward to now
I’m so blessed to have the best of both worlds.
I’m currently the Inbound Marketing Manager of a very promising startup, working 2 days a week in the office and the rest of the week at home. Three years since I became part of the Spiralytics family, all I can say is, I’m so blessed to have found these people. Read more about my work with Spiralytics HERE.
After office hours, I take design projects, not only because it earns us a little extra but mostly because I’ve been passionate about designing for as long as I can remember. I used to design for family and friends, until I started receiving inquiries from people who have seen my work somewhere. What you see now in this site is a result of years of self-studying Photoshop and WordPress out of pure love for the craft, and I love that I get to earn a little from something that doesn’t feel like work. Win-win.
Of course, I’m a full-time Wife and Mom, and no offense to my other “jobs”, but this one is undeniably my most favorite job title of all.
