In 2004 I founded Snow's Cut Media. The main avenue of business was our magazine Snow's Cut Monthly. Starting and operating a business is difficult, time consuming, all encompassing and very rewarding. I created the business plan, organized the legal entities, set goals, managed staff, wrote budgets, sold advertising, developed and implemented our marketing plan and managed the day-to-day operations (including the ever-present "whatever else comes along.")

 

Unfortunately, the recession of 2008 was very hard on advertising sales. In 2010 we sold the businesses and moved on.

 

In 2011 I relocated to Wisconsin and took the position of Stewardship Director at the ambitious and successful Ozaukee Washington Land Trust. I was put in charge of managing 22 nature preserves (which increased to 31 by the end of my tenure!), running a department of 4-17 people (depending on the season), coordinating partnerships with other organizations, writing and managing large grants, organizing a large volunteer corps, recruiting, training and supervising staff, managing special events and last (but not least) serving as our media and outreach coordinator.

 

There is no part of a business, nonprofit, department or organization that I haven't run!
