Hi, I’m Becca! I am 28 years old and I am from Lakeland, Florida. First and foremost, writing is my number one passion! Growing up, I was either face first in a good book, or I was hunched over a piece of paper, scribbling down some sort of fictional story. Now that I’m older, not much has changed! I enjoy writing anything from blog posts and feature stories, to news articles or trending topics.
Aside from writing, I am totally a nerd for all things trendy, pop culture, and social media. I first discovered my passion for platforms while interning as a Social Media Manager one summer. That job truly opened my eyes to how much I loved an ever-evolving industry!
Currently, I work as a Social Media Marketing Manager for an amazing company and I create + schedule content for over 80 clients per week. I guess you could say I live, eat, and BREATHE social media. *insert happy dance here*
Also, if I had a dollar for every website I’ve made, photo I’ve edited, or Instagram I’ve managed for my friends, I’d be a millionaire. Okay, maybe not millionaire, but a hundred…aire?
No, but seriously, I genuinely love helping people with their online presence and showcasing all of the amazing-ness that their life (or business) entails. The only downside is that my own social media presence lacks sometimes. #SocialMediaManagerProblems.
Where it All Started
So far, my proudest accomplishment is having my story featured in Seventeen Magazine for skin cancer awareness month! (Totally a long and cool story, ask me about it sometime). But I remember being on set and admiring everyone around me. There were writers, editors, makeup artists, and a flamboyantly amazing man hyping me up behind the camera while offering me sips of Voss water in between photos. Can you say paradise? It was at that very moment I knew I wanted more in life.
Shortly after that trip, I made a promise to myself that I would follow my dreams no matter how crazy, or unreachable, they seemed.
In 2015, I finished my AA in Liberal Arts at Polk State College. For a few years, I worked full-time at a couple of dead end jobs. To be honest, living in a small, boring city was a total dream killer and I felt so lost and confused with what I actually wanted to do in life.
Finally, in 2018, I ditched my pity party and decided to pursue the one thing that had always kept me going. Writing! From there, I made the decision to go back to school AGAIN and I graduated in December of 2019 at the University of South Florida, where I earned my BA in Mass Communications with a focus in Journalism and Magazine.
From there, I had an insane drive to expand my knowledge and skills even more, which lead me to pursue a Master’s degree in Public Relations at Full Sail University. By the Spring of 2021, I will have completed my MA and hopefully be moving on to the next exciting thing!
While it may sound like I’m all work and no play, I am actually the goofiest girl you’ll ever meet and I love sharing life stories and connecting with others on a deeper level.
