I have wanted to see a TEDx event live since watching my first TED video in middle school. I never imagined then that I would attend an event, let alone that the event would be comprised of brilliant minds and talents from around the natural state and that I would live in the town where it was hosted.

When I signed up for the Made by Few conference, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. We bought our tickets before I started my job, so I wasn’t sure what my role in my host company would be or how applicable a design conference would be to me professionally. To be quite honest, I […]

I have learned a lot transitioning into the adventure our generation has dubbed “adulting.” The key for me though, has been the gradual and still extremely necessary acceptance of my “in process-ness.” What I mean is understanding the importance of giving myself the time and space in this major life transition to be a work […]
Around this time a month ago, the Arkansas Fellows at Collective Bias invited other Fellows from across the state to our corporate headquarters in Rogers, AR. Collective Bias, an Inmar Company, was the first company to break into the influencer marketing space. We were also one of the first host companies to welcome an Arkansas […]

Moving to a brand new city, alone can be a bit intimidating. I can’t lie, I was a nervous to be moving to Northwest Arkansas. I’m 3 hours away from home, and my family is my everything. However, I was excited about the journey I was preparing to embark upon — my new job as […]
