Our mission at Little Birdie Communications is to use our marketing powers for good. That means helping out the hard-working people who make our communities stronger, whether they’re small business owners, artists, or working in the nonprofit sector.
I’m a small business owner, so I know first-hand the challenges of running a business. I also spent 16 years in the nonprofit sector, during which I saw the importance of the work and the struggle to make ends meet when there’s so much need.
Working together, I can help you make a difference – after all, I’ve never worked with anyone who didn’t want to help other people in some way. That can mean many things – providing a great meal, creating a meaningful song, helping someone get through a difficult time, or making a place where the community can come together.
When I started Little Birdie Communications, I was working a full-time job where I managed websites and social media. As much as I liked the work, I found myself spending more time on the parts I didn’t enjoy and less on the parts I loved, so in 2012 I headed back to school and earned a master’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from West Virginia University, which I completed in 2015 with a 4.0 average. That complimented my bachelor’s degree in Communications Media, which I earned from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1999.
I took the leap to full-time small business owner in June 2016. I still sometimes have to do things I don’t love (general administrative work tops the list), but now I spend much more time doing the parts that I do love – working with people, finding creative solutions, and creating good marketing. I also enjoy the flexibility of having more control over my schedule, which gives me the ability to spend more quality with my family and volunteering, which I think is so important. I am currently a Girl Scout leader for my daughter’s troop, and a Boy Scout volunteer and merit badge counselor for my son’s troop.
I look forward to working with you, whether you need a new (or revamped) website, a clever marketing campaign, Facebook ads, a social media marketing plan, a new logo, help growing your email list… or even if you’re not sure what you need!
With Warm Marketing Wishes,
Owner, Little Birdie Communications
