Describe what you'll bring to a nonprofit board : To whom it may concern,
My history of working in film and marketing and helping to build startups allows me to bring a unique perspective to any brainstorm. Throughout my video and marketing career, I have developed a cinematic language that entwines empathy, wonder, and hope, and my visual language emphasizes authenticity and human consciousness, enabling it to connect with people on a universal level. My diverse background has given me the opportunity to connect with different people through innovative mediums, which I aim to expand more of in the coming years.
Professionally, I bring innovative, cutting edge, and creative video production and marketing strategies that reach, communicate, and engage with modern audiences. In addition to this I bring highly effective strategies that actually make video and content work for you. In my industry, most spend a lot of resources, time, and finances for video and content services with uncertain results, if any. Over the past ten years I have learned that content production and marketing setup properly with hosting platforms, KPI's, and proper distribution models can and will be a great lead generation and conversion tool with clear measurable results. Few implement it that way. Most produce and push out hoping that something will come of it, not ever knowing the true effectiveness of their content towards their goals.
Overall, I bring professional expertise and initiative but I really just care about helping people. That's what drives my excellence in everything I do. My work serves a greater purpose to educate, bring hope, and inspire. That's who I am as a person and it bleeds into everything I do.

Describe what you'll bring to a nonprofit board : Hello,
I would like to bring well-rounded millennial experiences to a nonprofit board. As a African American, college educated, queer woman I bring a very broad perspective on issues that require nonprofit attention. As a American that was born and raised in the very poor inner city of Detroit, my family has been recipicants of many nonprofit programs. Now as a working middle class tax payer that has "pulled themselves up by their bootstraps" when I didn't even have a boot to begin with, I understand what resources are needed to secure a decent chance at a substainable life. My views focus in on multiculturalism intersectionality. These views have been forged not only from my AA viewpoint but also from my sisterhood in a multicultural sorority, workings from extensive worldly travel, social justice political work, and current non profit volunteering through MUM. Lastly, what I can bring to a board is my insights and strategy skills. Eventhough nonprofits are not for profit these organizations must still be run as a for profit business. In my professional capacity I determine if it is strategically wise to enter certain markets or target specific companies for our food ingredients. I can take these same skill when determining allocations of resources for non-profits. Overall, I am a well-rounded individual that is looking forward to helping the Madison community. Thank you for the consideration.

My passion lies in helping give a voice to those that feel voiceless and connecting people to services they may need.
