Ladies that UX (LTUX) wants to empower women in technology, and what better way to do that than share the stories of some badass women in Richmond? We want to shine the spotlight on ladies who are passionate, powerful, and making their mark in the community. LTUX Richmond is excited to announce a new monthly blog series: Woman Crush Wednesday (#WCW), where we feature women who are doing big things in the area.

I met the fabulous women taking the lead with LTUX Richmond when they attended one of my RVA Content Strategy events. Needless to say, when they asked me to help them debut #WCW, I jumped at the chance.

Check out my post over at their blog and follow them on social. If you’re local to RVA, I hope to see you at one of our events!

Revisit: Were We Raised to be Generalists?

August 9, 2016

  After years of wearing all the hats, it turned out I could specialize in something. But only because I appreciate the greater context of digital marketing. I spent the last few years in marketing agencies and it’s easy to specialize there. You’re a copywriter, you’re a designer, you’re a developer. If you’re on a […]

Smashing the Glass Ceiling in Politics

July 29, 2016

No matter how you feel about Hillary Clinton, you have to step back and observe this historical moment. The women’s rights movement wasn’t just about having the right to vote, shedding the demands of home, or being more like men. It was about having the same choices. Today, we have to acknowledge there is an […]

Revisit: What Would Michelle Obama Do?

Michelle Obama DNC 2016

After last night’s DNC speech, Michelle Obama’s message, “Live your best life”, takes on a new perspective of hope and community. In 2012, Michelle spoke at the Virginia Tech graduation ceremony. I had tried to compartmentalize my frustration with how campaigning seems to permit public servants put their jobs on pause so that I could […]

Revisit: Hi, My Name is Emily, and I’m Pro-Corporate

July 22, 2016

Yep, the corporate life is totally for me. Since I’m in a new role “in-house” after four years at agencies, it seemed like this was one of the best posts to revisit as part of looking back. I wrote the original six years ago before I was in totally free, creative environments. The fact that […]

Going Back to the Beginning

July 20, 2016

“If I could turn back time…” “Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew/When I bit off more than I could chew…” “Oh the movie never ends/it goes on and on and on and on…” Yes, I just quoted some song lyrics. There’s nothing like meeting a new colleague who’s already checked out your blog. […]

Breaking the Bullseye: Blog Series Roundup

August 28, 2015

Problem: You want to authentically engage with a variety of customers, but your boss claims messaging to all of them is time consuming and expensive. You’re not alone. Recently, I worked on a blog series for the Create Digital blog. There’s a natural struggle between using all those personalization tools at your fingertips, but doing […]

Seven Years…

March 13, 2015

LinkedIn reminded me that it’s been seven years since I started this little blog. What’s crazy is that I’m not even focused on writing about tips, tricks, and perspectives — I’m focused on applying it. But with a little reminder comes a nudge to revisit the blog that started it all and reflect. Yep, this is […]
