ROLE AT BFFF:
I wear quite a few hats around here, but my main role is creatively directing all of our content at BFFF. Behind the scenes, I am also juggling recording podcasts, recipe development, creating content, shopping hauls, writing blog posts, SEO, social media strategy, and even boring stuff like bookkeeping. The list goes on! ;)
