Glass Gardens spreads joy by plants. The Norfolk based pop-up shop hosts terrarium classes at local businesses and private parties. I rebuilt the website and provide communication strategy consulting and implementation. I assist in organizing events and keep website information up to date.

I got involved with Better World Betty by attending a Zero Waste Warriors event and signed up to volunteer on other internal initiatives. I performed an analysis of the organization's Customer Relations Management (CRM) software and set it up to keep track of communication efforts for various initiatives and campaigns. I've provided user experience feedback about fundraising platforms the group is considering for future campaigns.
I continue to be active in the Zero Waste Warriors group attending events and look forward to providing continued media, software, and user experience support to Better World Betty.
As a former foster child, getting involved in an organization that aims to ensure foster youth can succeed and live independently was important to me. I gave a speech to the group about the obstacles that life may present to one coming out of foster care and how to constructively move past them. I am working on an initiative to help the group digitize their student files. I also have provided graphic design and website evaluation support for the group. I also made a friend for life. The director, Sarah, and I connected immediately and I truly enjoy the time I spend with her.
