I have the wonderful role of Social Media Coordinator for the West Acres Marketing, PR and Fashion team. I think that I have the best job in the world! I create content for the West Acres social media accounts and blog, which means that I get to share the latest trends, new arrivals, and all of the incredible happenings at West Acres with the community. When I am not snapping pictures for social media or writing blog content, I love to spend time painting in my art studio, testing out new baking recipes, practicing yoga, relaxing at the lake with family and friends, or playing outside on a pair of skis or my mountain bike.
