I launched The Sturm Agency in 2015 specializing in social media marketing and virtual assistant services. Since then I’ve worked with large and small companies, authors, entrepreneurs and coaches.

My favorite thing to do is strategize! If you don't know where to start with your social media presence, I'd love to help you create a brand, a message, and a plan. If you know what you want to do, but don't have the time or energy to execute your plan, I can help you there too! I create original content and curate the best of what the internet has to offer. 

I offer virtual assistant services including social media management, marketing services, and general admin work. See my services tab for a sampling of what I do.

I love learning and am obsessed with sharing knowledge with others.

Prior to beginning a freelance career, I spent six years working as an Information Specialist in a corporate library at a biotechnology company. I use the skills from my previous life to research my industry and my clients' industries. I also search for, and plan imaginary road trips to, restaurants that left town when I was a child - I miss you, Olga's Kitchen!

I love writing and have been published on numerous online publications including Scary Mommy and The Write Life. I also have a fiction novel in Google Drive that will eventually see the light of day.

I’m active in my community of Rockford, Illinois. I run Stateline Kids, a hyperlocal website for family-friendly events and information and The Stateline Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of families and children in our community.

My greatest joys are my daughter and son, but books are a close second.
