I enjoy the photos, sometimes the captions but mainly the break from the same memes, political opinions and click bait that clogs the feeds of my other social media accounts. Because of this love for Instagram, I thought I would share some of my favorite accounts that make my short scenic breaks worth it every time.

2015 Book Review

At the beginning of the year I made a goal to read one book per month. I have never been very successful at keeping these promises but reading more was something that I really did want to start doing and this seemed like a reasonable way to keep me accountable.

Resumes and Branding for Nonprofit Professionals

Finding a job can be a tough process. Whether you are a student or a seasoned professional, there is no exception and the nonprofit sector feels the same struggles.

As a member of the board and marketing committee I volunteered to share my knowledge on resumes and branding for two sessions. I have experience in both subjects and knew that this would be a great opportunity to teach others.
